The sun is red.
The skies are grey with ash and smoke.
An eerie orange tint colors the fields.
Everyone is hunkered down…
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?

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.
Very scary time out there. You are all in my thoughts often. And the owl picture…wow!
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.
Beautiful post – thank you.
It is so scary. We have had many wildfires here too after a prolonged heatwave. Praying you all stay safe xxx
Climate change? Definitely. When New Hampshire is as warm as Texas and Nevada, there’s not a lot that can be denied. Now, let’s talk about that owl photo because it is amazing. Your photography skills are showing ‘again.’ 🙂
Good grief, you are right. Great photos and omg that owl! Summers are nothing like what I remember from my youth. They feel like something to be endured. Sigh.

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!
