Last night I went back to the canal armed with my Nikon to take photos of the sun setting in the band of smoke. It didn’t disappoint. The sun was a red ball setting behind the smoke. The fire has grown in size and people’s homes are in danger. The smoke is blanketing the city making it hard to breath outdoors. Getting my daily walk is out of the question so I’m relegated to the treadmill at the gym. Hopefully the fire will be contained soon and the smoke will clear.

I’ve seen a few of those.
We’re waiting to see how it will be on Monday with the total eclipse.
. . . dark?
In spite of the photo opportunities, it must be quite alarming. I hope it rains soon.
That is stunning. Are you planning on photographing that eclipse tonight?
I don’t have the proper solar filters to photograph the eclipse but will try to find some way to get some photos. It will be in Monday morning.
I got my days mixed up, haha. I thought today was Sunday. I didn’t know it was in the morning though!
I’ve been hearing rumours that you shouldn’t look at the eclipse through camera lenses. And that we can hurt our eyes etc.
I have solar glasses so I can see the eclipse but didn’t want to spend the money for filters for the camera.
Understood. Well have fun for the best of us. 😊
Really nice shots! We had terrible smoke in Seattle for two weeks from the BC fires. So glad it’s gone now!
