There was a fire just over the hill from our house last week. The sun is going down in this picture and the smoke from the fire blocks what little sun was left for the day.
It's hot here, the sun is not cheery and bright to me, it is oppressive, something I endure for 3 months out of the year. I stay inside with the air conditioner on and know that there are 9 months ahead when the sun is a joy and a friend.


I find our summer sun oppressive also, and spend most of my time indoors. How scary to have a fire so close to you. But it did make an interesting picture.

what a fascinating (and a little freaky) photo! i'm so glad to see you spt this week.
