Smoky sunset on the prairie


The sun has taken on a strange appearance each of the last few evenings.  The smoke from the wildfires to the west was thick in the foothills west of Calgary last Thursday when I stopped along Highway 8.  The pink globe in the sky drew my attention and, once stopped, I enjoyed watching the small clouds drifting past.  This one looked like a dancing bull, or maybe a bison in full stride, as it charged across the sun.

  3. That is something! So neat, I could stare for hours. The smoke really gives an interesting affect to the lighting.

  4. You’re right. I saw it as a bison even before I read your text. It’s striking, and eerily beautiful.
