I hesitated to put this in the blog because I thought it might not show well. But it holds up pretty well. Last month there were a lot of brush and swamp fires up in Georgia, in and near the Okeefenokee and west of here in Florida. When the wind was right (wrong?) we got a lot of smoke. To spend a lot of time outdoors felt the same as smoking used to.
For a photographer it was fascinating, as the light had this orange apocalyptic look to it all day, made more intense when the sun was low in the sky. This was taken last month while I walked with my friend John early in the day.
