Skywatch Friday #58 - Camano Sunset

A few weeks back, smoke from fires in British Columbia, Canada gave us some spectacular sunsets down in the Puget Sound area of Washington. This night was no exception. All I did was crop the pictures down to take out the power lines across the top.

I spent 6 weeks this Summer on San Juan Island (that's where my Sky Watch photo was taken). These are gorgeous sunsets, I would have loved to have been there to photograph them, but I am not sad that we've missed the burning and destruction.
