Reflections of a Smoky Sun

    This morning as Kona and I walked around the pond, my eye was drawn to the orange reflection of the sun, as it climbed over the mountain.   Our sky continues to be blanketed with forest fire smoke.  

    It seems a bit ironic that at the same time I was taking this photo, logging truck after logging truck were barreling down the road carrying trees that a week ago were part of a healthy forest, a healthy forest that was removing carbon out of the air.   It is the excessive amount of carbon in the air that has warmed the planet so much that our climate is going nuts with extreme heat, extreme drought, extreme flooding, and extreme forest fires, but it doesn’t seem to matter; all those things that are causing the problem continue, and even increase.

Take a look at my paintings:
