When we were driving through Deschutes National Forest the smell of smoke permeated the car before we could see it. As we continued over a crest we saw a wall of smoke about a quarter of a mile away. The sunlight was filtering weakly though and I insisted that we find a spot to pull over so I could get a better look. Upon inspection it was clearly a controlled burn, there were fires set methodically throughout the trees but it was interesting nonetheless.
This is a landscape crop of a photo taken as a portrait. I like the details better and the contrast between the trees in the fore and backgrounds.
