A landscape that normally looks like this:
...has taken on a post-Apocalyptic quality as of late due to the dozens of forest fires in the entire northwest of Canada and the U.S.
With a blood-orange Sun above and the mountains almost completely obscured by the smoke on the horizon line, this is what the "very unhealthy" air-quality rating looks like.
Indeed, this made doing open-water laps, mainly coming up for air, noticeably unpleasant, which means I underestimated the extent of the fires. If these conditions persist, I'd love to venture out with my DSLR, though staying indoors is advised.
