When I woke up this morning, the rising sun was orange. For the last few days we have been getting California’s wildfire smoke in Edmonton, Alberta, and it is expected to be worse this afternoon. It reminded me of the smoke we got from the Fort MacMurray fire in 2016, but this smoke has travelled a lot further.
So, I grabbed my camera and went out before breakfast to get a few shots. I experimented with the settings to try to capture what I saw. Here are three pictures that came close. They were taken between 8:00 and 8:30 AM on an otherwise clear day.
Same terrible story every year. I don’t know how people get through this. I do hope that everyone who needs support is getting it.
It really is very sad, and worse every year it seems.
Last year it was Brazil, Australia, and California. Please make it stop someone please. And don’t get me started on fireworks gender reveal person. Not even computing for me right now.
Oh, I know! They can just stop those stupid parties right now, with or without pyrotechnics. It’s a stupid idea. And, just to be picky, it’s not a gender reveal anyway. It’s a sex reveal.
🤣😂😅 Exactly, right!
My sister lives in BC and see smoke in the sky…Hope all goes well for you.
The smoke is a lot worse in the Vancouver area than it is here. I’m surprised it has travelled so far.
That’s terrible 😕.
Could be smoke from the Oregon fires.
It is both. And, Washington, too. The weather maps showed the whole continent with all the smoke from the fires joining together and heading north on the same air stream.
