Nice compositions--smoke is a great guilty pleasure of photographers.  The horrible stuff can help create extraordinary images.  The first image probably wouldn't be half as interesting on a sunny day.

The smoke from the California wildfires is making it hard to breathe here in the Seattle area, but also creating beautiful lighting conditions for photography.

Note that in normal times there'd be much more light AND Seattle would be clearly visible a few miles across the lake.
