I stumbled along this image on the way back from Lake Mary on an autumn afternoon in 2019. The endless fires in California can be a real drag. I know that they are important, and I know that smoke filled skies are always worth a look. This is an idea that I had never thought about here in this location. Trees and smoke, yes, but in these years, I had not realized that this old Jeffery Pine and smoke were a perfect match. It is proof to ALWAYS keep your eyes open, and be ready to see NEW ideas.
