September 29: Smokey Sunset

Sherman Oaks, CA

Ash fell from the sky and collected on the hood of my car as I pulled off Mulholland Drive to take this shot. There is a 17,000+ acre fire burning 10 miles to the North of us. Hundreds of people have been evacuated, but so far no houses have been lost. All during the day the sky had an orange glow, and the smell of smoke is inescapable.

1/250s f/10.0 at 85.0mm iso800 full exif

I've been concerned for my LA friends... I'm glad all that has happened for you was a handy and interesting sunset shot.

Very dramatic shot of the smoke and the sun.
I had to call my parents to see how they were doing with the fires as well. They are just
north of Thousand Oaks, but are not too concerned, yet.
