Distant Theme #75

Posted in Photography on May 16, 2011 by paintedmeadows

The distant sun setting throught the distant cloud and smoke from the distant fires.   It was so beautiful last night but the fires here in northern Alberta are wreaking havoc.  The town of Slave Lake has already lost over 500 homes and many towns right around us have been evacuated.  We are keeping a close eye on things but so far we are safe.  Evacuees are seeking shelter in our little town as well as in Peace River so the fires are close enough to be worrisome.
