Burnin' Sky (sun's on fire in California)

The fires out in California (once again!) provide some great conditions for photography, if nothing else.

I shot this one last evening out of my living room window with an older Nikon COOLPIX L810 grab-and-go camera at max zoom (who goes outside anymore, and especially when everything is on fire?).

Actually, I was not near any fire but they were still close enough to smoke up my area.


And JUST FOR ASHER, since he asked, here is an iPhone pic I just grabbed through the blinds – of a new California mountain range, the Great Smokey Mountains (no relation)!

Beautiful and so damn serious!

A huge tragedy of climate dryness and explosive fires. Millions displaced!
