Where there’s smoke there are pix

I am finally taking heed of all that I have been reading, learning, and experiencing in taking all these pix.  Go when inclement weather rules.

For years I thought anything but a blue sky was a disaster.  Now, a blue sky makes me cringe.  I am finally starting to get it… ‘hey, it’s raining… let’s go take pix’.  ‘It’s snowing out, let’s go take pix.’.  Crazy, right?!  Those interesting, moody skies, make for … wait for it…  interesting, moody shots.

Case in point, we are being inundated with smoke in our neighborhood thanks to the Forest Service.  Their ‘prescribed burns’ are meant to help keep the fires at bay.  I’m all for that… and can put up with some smokey air now and again to assure that our fire risk is abated.  And as long as we’re getting smoke… let’s get pix.

I had thought the smoke would diffuse the light and allow me to bring out my fall colors by isolating my subject.  So we left early in the morning to see what we could capture.  The fall colors were unaffected by the burns… but the early low sun streaming through the trees made for some interesting shots.
