The Sun Is Red

The sun is red.
The skies are grey with ash and smoke.
An eerie orange tint colors the fields.

Everyone is hunkered down…

watching –


and holding their breath.

Praying for those affected by the fires – and the brave, weary firefighters who stand between the blazing monsters and so many more.
Climate change coming?

It’s here.

  1. What a stunning photo of the owl peering out of the tree! Fabulous account of the impact of the fires from the pov of each creature here.

  2. Oh my word, I hope you are all staying safe – humans and animals alike! They were saying on the news last night that the fires have spread to an area the size of Los Angeles, and you all came to my mind first. Prayers for your safety!!

    All the photos are beautiful; but that owl is hauntingly so.

  3. It’s pretty scary! We just returned from Oakland and the gorgeous orange-glow sunset was all too familiar! As we came from Los Angeles and over the Grapevine all we could see was smoke and haze. I am so sad for those who are directly caught in these infernos. The effects of climate change are no longer debatable…they’re observable!
