Smoky lake (a break from MusicFest)

Posted by
LauraS (Chico, United States) on 13 August 2012 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Smoke hangs in the air all over Plumas County, Butte County and beyond. Here at Lake Almanor it is so thick we can't be there. The air is not healthy to breathe. The fire butting the smoke here, is known as the CHP Fire. There is also another fire burning too close for comfort, the Reading Fire. North of Lassen National Park. It is sad, but also a part of life in the forests, that fire clears the brush...

Visual learner that I am, I enjoy taking photos, seeing others photos, and sharing them with all of you.
How I view the world may influence others to see more clearly that the world I live in is truly a beautiful and spectacular place. I hope I can share my sense of wonder with others. I see the world in beauty, awe, reverence and wonder.

Truly, I am an amateur who loves to look at my world, marvel at its beauty, diversity, and I capture a slice for myself to remember and share. Surely I get inspired by the work I see from other photographers and it moves me to try new things.

Very nice image. The composition effect of the bend in this corner of the like is excellent.

Right out of a fairytale Laura! Gorgeous atmosphere and surrealistic sky and landscape. I love this shot.

@Becky: Thanks, although, right now, Terre is on an emergency run up there to see if we need to evacuate the cabin, and take the boat to a safe location, and bring back any valuables. Sudden turn for the worse in the fire... Scary now.

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

I would like it more if it was mist instead of smoke, but it does make an interesting photo.

@B. Thomas: Thanks for saying that, Barbara, me too.

A beautiful photo, Laura, even if Nature's way is sometimes threatening to humanity's way.

The beauty and ferocity of nature captured in perfect harmony. Hope the fires didn't do too much damage to life and property.
