    1. Agreed! Most definitely not what one wants, ravaging fires, to create such color phenomenon. I was ecstatic at first, the hues so intriguing, until later in the evening, when on the news, they explained what was going on in the sky. So tragic… 😔

    1. I hesitated to post them. They have been sitting in my drafts… 😪 but I do like the colors. The conditions lasted about a week. Haven’t noticed anything unusual with the Skirball fires and smoke.


      1. Well I know they have a major impact on our lives and actually can be deadly, but they do say that they are a natural way of clearing and regenerating woodland, and more so the wilderness. I guess it comes down to it being a fight between us and the wilderness… we’ll probably lose out on occasions.
        I had a fire here in my orchard last Spring, it has been so dry in southern Spain this year and lost, no lives, but four very old olive trees. It’s a pain… but I think a part of life, nature, etc..

      2. Often these tragedies could be avoided. The forests are not managed well enough. And arsonists, well what a terrible way to live out life. Destruction makes no sense. In this instance, it is difficult to find grace.

        I love the olive tree. I had a dream once. Of an olive tree. It was pitch black, but the green leaves shone, and the bark full of wisdom. I will never forget the impact that vision had on me. I still ponder the meaning…

        the wilderness isn’t managed but the forest can be
        I have an olive that’s centuries old… it’s trunk twists and turns and survives whatever is thrown at it. The other olives were burnt by a careless person who wanted a BBQ there!
        Otherwise it’s a true survivor and to dream of it would certainly mean that whatever is to come… there are no worries!

  1. Oh wow that really is miles away. Hate to think what it was like closer. We were in Lakw Tahoe a couple of years ago when there were fires around Yosemite, and the smoke was just dreadful.

  2. Wonderful shots……..do not like though the cause of the colours. Do hope you were not affected any more by the wildfires.

    And a big thank you for joining in the #SquareSky challenge.

    1. Hi Becky. Incredibly, I live outside Indianapolis, Indiana. Far, far away and initially did not realize why the sky looked so strange! The sun appeared a limited time, as those were taken with my phone. I went inside to get my Nikon, to find the clouds had taken over. J
