1 Shot Wednesday: Smoke in the Valley

Living next to a wilderness area, lightning can strike during monsoon season and start a wildfire. That’s an annual threat in Arizona. The smoke travels and descends into pockets of the terrain and sits there causing poor air quality for animals and people. This picture is bizarrely beautiful. Taken in 2014, the wind pushed the smoke from a fire forty miles away to the Verde Valley.

    • I know! I am thinking of it as a silver lining. But it would be hard to breathe down there. I lived on a hill at the time, and I was sorry for those poor souls in the hollows.

  2. i love the composition of the four long rectangles, but would trim the bottom half of the bottom one to make it the same height as the top one. colors are remarkable.
