The fires out in California (once again!) provide some great conditions for photography, if nothing else.

I shot this one the other evening out of my living room window with an older Nikon COOLPIX L810 grab-and-go camera at max zoom (who goes outside anymore, and especially when everything is on fire?).

Actually, I was not near any fire but they were still close enough to smoke up my area. Yet somehow the air quality in SoCal was "Moderate" today, one click up from Good (which is as good as it gets). In fact, right this minute LA has mostly Moderate and some Good air quality (!).

Thanks Allan! How are things up in NH? Last I heard you got a bit of weather from the hurricane. I'm trying to decide who's got it worse!

Sun came out this evening. For a minute.

I haven't forgotten you up there! I see there are local ID fires as well. So in the US overall we have a choice of too much smoke or too much water.

I've seen the same thing here, the sun peeks out for a moment then the smoke swallows it... Last night I was actually able to watch it descend to right where I wanted it.

While I'm at it, here is an alternate from the other day.
