Here seen is by far the clearest day in Los Angeles anyone has ever seen. The image was captured the day after 2 consecutive storms hit back to back, clearing out all the smog, and leaving Mt. Baldy crisp, and freshly coated with a blanket of snow.

"The Church Fire"
Campo Indian Reservation, Ca
The deep smoke from 30 miles north, and made its was all the way down to Dana Point, where I spent most of my childhood.
What a etherial experience waking up to billowing smoke flowing through Yosemite Valley. There are multiple fires burning in Yosemite National Park's wilderness. The Empire Fire is located in Yosemite's Wilderness and was reported on the night of July 31. This fire is being managed for multiple objectives, for both protection and resources. It is approximately 1 mile south of the Bridalveil Creek Campground, between Alder Creek and Bridalveil Creek. This fire had stopped us from reaching Glacier Point by vehicle, because the road still remains closed.
I created this aspect ratio with a full frame 14mm lens, on a APS-C Sony a6000. This is a 12 vertical frame panoramic image, contains 6 vertical frames panning horizontally at 0 deg. and another row of 6 frames at -30 degrees. Merged and processed in Adobe Lightroom CC.
