Desolation

I've had my eye on this tree for several months, thinking it might make an interesting image at sunset. I captured this image at dusk with a flock of starlings in the branches when the Stouts wildfire near Canyonville, Oregon and the River Complex fire near Shasta in California poured smoke into the Rogue Valley. The tree sits in a dry cow pasture.

With fires burning nearby around Crater Lake and California the smoke has obscured the horizon. It has done interesting things with light

Smokeset

With fires burning nearby around Crater Lake and California the smoke has obscured the horizon in the Rogue Valley. It has done interesting, and spooky, things with light.
