Thanks California, Washington and Oregon.

Salt Lake City, Utah – August 17, 2015

There is a haze over our city, and it’s not even our fault.

We’re getting smoke from the wildfires in northern California right now.  It leaves the city looking like a we’re in the middle of a typical winter inversion.  And you can smell it – it’s like I’m living next to a perpetual campfire.

The good news – a cold front is heading our way and the winds are going to change.  They are going to change from the west to the north west.

The bad news – there are a bunch of wild fires in Oregon and Washington state, so we’re still going to be getting smoke.

On the bright side – smoky air makes for amazing sunrises and sunsets.  Today’s sunrise:

 

I’ll try to get some more sunrise/sunset pictures.  If I do, you’ll see them here.

With the amount of haze this afternoon, I suspect we're in for a great sunset. And a lot of asthma sufferers in the ER.

Haze or no haze, your evening views (okay day views too) are always a delight to see.

That's the big problem with the haze we get here, winter or summer. It's great for sunrise and sunset shots. Not so good for breathing.
