Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those dealing with the California wildfires.
One other thing to keep in mind is that all that smoke makes for some impressive sunsets and orange moons. Both of these were taken in Fort Collins, CO last night with the setting sun reminding me of a dying sun in a post-apocalyptic world. Very eerie.
Apparently weather patterns are perfect to deliver us the smoke. So get out and take some photographs to take advantage of these rare and unique conditions in our western US skies.
