Beautiful sky. So sad about the fires. My daughter is surrounded by them down in Monterey.
I like the sunset about to go over the hills.I think this is the best Sky Watch Friday yet. The things I have seen are very encouraging and the photography is spot on.I really admire your photography skills and your critical eye for composition, lighting and texture.Abraham Lincoln—Brookville Daily Photo

Happy Independence day to you also. glad to hear your smoke is clearing,, I think the smoke is now in Wyoming (wink)
Amazing how something so damaging can turn into something so beautiful. Nice catch my friend! Happy 4th to you also.
Wonderful eerie picture! So sad about all those fires!! Have a good weekend. Thanks for stopping by earlier.
The past 3 summers we had severe drought conditions, and numerous wildfires in the region. I can empathize with your smoky-chokey conditions. :( On the bright side, a smoky skyline makes for great photo opportunities!
It is well known that we Portuguese once sailed the seven seas searching for new lands, wealth and adventures.We were brave in those days and gave the world new worlds!Luckily I don’t have to sail the big oceans on a small ship to sea the wonders of our world …No Sir, I just need to check with Mr. Tom, the finest host there is, for a trip around the world with SKY WATCH TOURS and with a click here, a click there I am quickly in the USA, England, Brazil, Italy, China, Australia, Finland … well, everywhere.And on each stop I come to see a little marvel of our world under a great sky!Hope you can come and see my piece of the sky at lenses & visionsI don´t think mine will be a match to yours but even so ...
I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, and last Monday we finally got a relief from all that smoke in the air... They're having a heck of a time with the fires down in Big Sur -- a real tragedy for that area...
Great catch for SWF! This reminds me the quote... "God and Nature first made us what we are, and then out of our own created genius we make ourselves what we want to be. Follow always that great law. Let the sky and God be our limit and Eternity our measurement".... Happy weekend! Mine's up too hope you can drop by..
Very nice shot:)
We drove into the Central Valley of California early last week to similar smoke. Having been busy packing up our son's family for the move and other hectic activities as well, we were taken totally by surprise and I had to log on to some news to know we had clear passage on our particular route. Well, "clear" is relative.
I hope the fires cause no harm... but it dose make for a great view... thank you so much for joining in again this week.. I'm a bit late visiting but still wanted you to know your post was very much Appreciated..Tom
That sure is beautiful.
So good to hear that your sky cleared up so you can enjoy the weekend outside! Happy 4th!
Very nice. Nature ALWAYS gives us a gift of beauty to offset the bad a bit. Even in the worst disasters, there will be something remarkably beautiful left, even if only a rainbow. We need but look with all our senses open:)
Thanks for the visit.Great silhouette shot.GaryBodge's Bulletin
Thanks, everyone, for the kind remarks and bits of insight and wisdom that came along with them. I've enjoyed reading each and every one.
Was that why the moon was orange down here in Florida? Big smoke up from California! We had fires here once too close to the house - its roof on the respiratory system. Happy belated 4th to you too
