Off Topic - Fire pictures
There are many forest fires in BC right now. About 20 started last Friday night with a huge lightening storm. It was also raining buckets so how new one's started I don't understand. Anyway, one was dirrectly west of us, across the bit of lake that we see from the balcony. It was 39 hectares on Saturday night but with the wind grew to over 700 by last night. It is a rural area but there are quite a few people on evacution alert. It is about 1/2 hour from here.
The first picture shows our "normal" sunset view in early Aug. The next picture shows the flames which were clearly visable on Saturday night. I didn't use a tripod, in fact my first attempt at picture that night were of the house lights down in Canoe.
The third picture is during the day yesterday when the smoke was unbelievable so I mostly stayed inside.
Fortunately the wind was not too bad last night and the fire didn't seem to grow like it did the night before.
