The dawning day painted the air an eerie orange, but I didn’t know why until I ventured outside with Shadow for our walk and I found an ominous smoke cloud hovering over Silver Lake and its surroundings.

From a vantage point up on Micheltorena I snapped a few images with my phonecam. And once back home only then did I find out the smoke wasn’t from nearby but came a long way from a fire in Orange County.
