Song title - Smoke Gets In Your Eyes



The other day my city awoke to a weirdly orange-coloured sky. This view of the Pacific Ocean isn't a sunset shot - it was taken at 11:42 AM. Seems we were downwind of several forest fires, the first time that has happened in my ~19 years of living here. The sky remained orange for several hours, then paled to a greyish-yellow that hung around for 3 or 4 more days before finally dissipating.

Definitely a weird sky to have to live with, but a lovely picture. Classic - the way the ripples in the water naturally lead the eye to the boat in the distance.
Is it usual to have the ocean so very calm at mid-morning?
Thank you!

This is actually a strait, not the open waters of the Pacific. Even then it's rarely this mirror-like. Definitely added to the spooky feel.
Oooooh, eerie. And great idea for this prompt.
Thank you.

P.S. Beautiful icon! And sort of in the same colour theme :-)
That is not only a beautiful picture but a brilliant reply to the prompt, too.
Thank you very much for your kind words!
Really a weird sky, and although it's such a thing of beauty, the reason for it makes it difficult to really enjoy it, doesn't it?

It does! People were making nervous jokes about zombie apocalypses. And sure, we knew what the cause was, but the scary thing is we had no idea how long it would last. This has been a terrible season for wildfires :-(
Terrible situation, but what a hauntingly beautiful photo!
