This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is The World Through Your Eyes. That concept is essentially the premise of my blog, and most of you have a pretty good idea of what my world looks like. Well, this week it’s pretty smoky and my eyes are burning, thanks to more wildfires than I can count in New Mexico and Colorado. Worse than last year. When I framed this shot, I made sure to include the foliage in the front to give the image some depth and accentuate the smoke in the background.
Most of the smoke in this image came from the West Fork Complex Fire. As a friend said, this fire is a monster and “the perfect storm of drought, heat, beetle kill, and wind.”
Anyone else feeling the effects of climate change?
