Photo Phun

Pointing a camera--or, in this case, an iPhone--at the sun can bring some marvelous effects.

Once again we are enveloped in smoke from forest fires.    To the west, the long-burning Swan lake fire was stirred up by some wind and to the east, a small fire started yesterday afternoon near downtown Moose Pass.

Fortunately, smoke jumpers were on it quickly and a helicopter was dropping water on it also.

But, where there's fire, there's smoke and I'm catching it from both directions.

This is a photo from this evening.   I like the layered mountains effect.

Tern Lake.   The two white spots in the middle are the resident trumpeter swans.
