One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2018—Smoky Drop

The devastating wild fires that are consuming California have blanketed the state with smoke and ash.  Fires are raging, largely uncontained, and smoke covers a third of the state. Although I am more than 100 miles from any of the fires, the sky is hazy and the morning light is reddish.  When I took a photograph of a tiny blade of grass with a water drop yesterday morning, the sun shining through the smoky haze created a reddish aura around the droplet and the sun’s rays created a star burst that glowed red as well.

Nikon D850; 105mm Micro Lens; ISO 64; f/57; Shutter 1.3 sec.
