My favourite valley shrouded in smoke from a fire threatening a small town. Luckily it was contained. Not so lucky we places in N.S.W where homes were destroyed in minutes. Tinder dry country as the drought continues & the El Nino effect is ready to begin again.

I agree with JD. Before I read your story, I just thought, awesome, awesome light and mist... Then I understood.
But still, this photograph is incredible. Vote

You have an unbelievable depth in this image. The fire is very unfortunate, but that definitely added to the image.

Sad that it is a bushfire, but you reaped the benefit. The smoke enhances the layered look.

That's too bad that it's a bushfire. It sure makes for a super shot. It looks like dusky mist. GMV

To the uninitiated it looks just like mist... Hope the fire is extinguished soon. Really nice view from this mountain.
