Fiery Sky
7

California has had the worst series of wildfires in my lifetime. Millions of acres burned and are still burning. Many summers it is gray and smokey from various fires, and the smoke can blow from areas near San Francisco across the central valley and up into the mountains where I live, over 200 miles away. A few weeks ago, dry lightning strikes caused a huge fire not all that far from where I live...about 25 miles away. In mid afternoon I came out of my house and looked up and this is what the sky looked like. Eerie, unworldly almost, and frightening . Oddly, at the time I shot these photos I couldn't smell smoke at all. The sky in California from the coast in San Francisco to the Sierra Nevada mountains looked somewhat like this for several weeks. Sadly, numerous small towns were completely burned up.
