Smoky Sunset

By ronss
There's a forest fire burning about 120km from here. The smoke stays in the valley systems. It was pretty smoky yesterday, and I got a few shots of the sunset. This is looking from the east side of Okanagan Lake at Naramata (a bedroom community NE of Penticton) across to Summerland.

We're camping at Naramata this week with sister-in-law and her 3 kids, brother-in-law and his lady friend. Father-in-law is housesitting in town and keeping the dogs happy.

Nicely composed with the bit of foreground interest. The smoke can make for some atmospheric images especially around sunrise/sunset, so keep the camera ready.

Good capture of a lovely scene! Its ironic that the scene resulted in part from the fire disaster

Gorgeous colours in this sunset shot Ron. Smoke really enhances shots like this, but I hope the fires weren't too severe!
