Forest fire smoke helps color sunset skies

Smoke

 

Smoke was visible from the international Bridge Friday, June 24th from forest fires near Raco, Michican. The fires were short-lived, but their smoke helped to make a beautiful sunset along Lake Superior that evening.

By Mamainse, the Lake was still. This near silhouette of the island is reminiscent of fractals.

By the time I got to the Sand River Hill, the lake was bathed in red light. The sunlight refracting through the smoke particulate – created a red cast.

Only minutes later, with the drop in elevation – the sun had dipped behind the treeline at Katherine’s Cove. Pinks and purples, and a horizon that was nearly invisible made for a beautiful sight.
