World Photography Day Wildfire Smoke

Today is world photography day. Here is my submission from my backyard. Smoke, smoke and more smoke. A cedar border in our yard and the mountain across the Columbia River in Trail, British Columbia, Canada.
Our air quality index is currently: Hazardous 320 AQI US
On the British Columbia Air Quality site, we are at 10+.

Photo taken shortly after noon PST. No clouds.

The masks we have been using for Covid are very useful when the atmosphere gets this thick.

Oh mein Gott die Welt ist im Wandel
was hinterlassen wir unseren Kindern und was wollen wir uns an Enkeln erklären

Well photographed, showing the state of your world. This about the 3rd or 4th time I have lived with so much smoke that we need masks (and yes, still having Covid masks around has been useful for this). Down here in Oregon we are just today (Sunday) getting some of the smoke from your area along with some additional from Washington fires. Not as bad as where you are!

I hope your air smoke drops soon. (And hey, I live near the Columbia River also - but way at the other end in Portland, Oregon. Didn't realize you were up north from me.)

Thank you for still thinking about our event. Had you planned on going out somewhere to photograph for the day? Or were your tree lines a point of interest for you anyway?

We moved here last year from Alberta. I intended to go to a footbridge that provides a good view of our town. I went outside in my backyard to see if I could get a shot of the mountains across the river, without houses, and power lines. When the smoke is thick we can barely see across the river. This is what I got. Cooler weather and rain are in our forecast. It was 106F, a record, on a day last week.

Hope the cool wet weather we just got has made it to you as well.

My eyes were immediately drawn towards the spider webs at the top of the trees.

Yes, indeed. We got a remnant of Hilary followed by cooler temperatures and a nice gentle rain last night. A perfect day in the 70s today.
