The Orange Haze of Doom

I took these pictures from the King Street Train Station which in part  is below street level in downtown Seattle.

The orange / yellow haze is caused the smoke reacting to the sunlight from two forest fires that have settled into a large area in Washington State.

This is the same area taken from a slightly different angle and I shot it from the shade.

The smoke didn’t show up in this shot because I  moved a few feet down to a  slightly covered area.

The smoke was still very much present even though you couldn’t see it.

As a side note:

I have never taken such quiet commuter train rides in this past year.  Nobody is laughing or shoving or talking on their phones. Most people are walking a little slower and a few people are coughing.

I miss the blue sky and I miss real clouds- not that thick blanket of smoke that’s hanging up there pretending to be something it is NOT.

I hope it clears up, just a little and SOON.

Wildfire smoke is choking Seattle, obscuring the view and blocking out the sun

Ash from wildfires falls while smoky, ‘unhealthy’ air chokes Washington state
