Smoky Sun Cloudy Moon

Sun cutting through a smoky sky

 

Smoke from a fire in the Gila National Forest southwest of Albuquerque blew north today filling the air with a blue/gray haze under overcast skies. As the clouds started breaking up in the late afternoon, the sun looked like a sharp yellow disk painted on an orange background as it cut through the smoky atmosphere hanging above the horizon. The moon rose through smoky skies under mottled clouds, a combination that created ever changing shapes like shadow mimes playing the heavens.

NEWS FLASH!!!!

16:39 — Little Owl still in the hole giving me a heads up.

 

16:41 — Little Owl still in the hole giving me a profile.

 

20:36 — Under the light of my flashlight, we can see that either Little Owl finally got out of the hole or a fuzzy, out of focus, little Yeti (Yetis are never in focus) is standing by Little Owl's hole.

Thanks, Christine. Smoke from fires makes the sun easier to photograph, but the smoke is no fun to have hanging around. The owlets are adorable.
