Smoke gets in your eyes


Not to worry, this is merely smoke from a nearby chimney! Shot from the deck of our house in Ocala.

Those are nice colors in the sky. Then my eye was drawn to the smoke. Nice contrast with the greens, too.

What,a re you having a cold spell down there--it snowed here all day.

Fun capture though, evocative of questions and mystery.

Having experienced the Oakland Hills fire in 1992 where more than 2000 homes burned and almost 30 people died, any time «Louis» sees smoke in trees, alarm bells go off!

cela donne une très belle lumiere bleutée

very eerie--bluish smoke. I think there is a Gypsy encampment ubder the canapy of the tree branches. I really do! MB

Smoke and clouds, maybe aome haze and a lot of mystery. A beautiful image.

That's a very smoky chimney...but what a view you've got!

Interesting shot. I'm ready to get home, let's hope my flights later this evening are not delayed. I'm still a little disappointed I didn't see any sun here in Florida. But I guess it's warmer here than it has been in Jackson.

I would sure be enjoying sitting there if it was woodsmoke!

That's a remarkable photo, J. It could be anywhere, it actually looks like the mountains to me.

Virginia said...

Fireplaces in Ocala? Who knew! Lovely photo. Looks like fog.

It's pretty Jacob! We had some smoky looking (and smelling) skies here the other day, but I think it was from a controlled burn in the National Forest.

Jarart said...

Must have bee chilly there in the "Sunshine State". The picture is so interesting though, it captures the imagination.

Small City Scenes said...

Jacob, I don't do any of that other stuff--I just watch the mountain. I think it disappears during the day because it is on an elevator and down it goes.
I think the clouds cover it because as the air warms the atmosphere is different and maybe pollution down towards Seattle-Tacoma area makes a difference too.

I suppose it is 150+ miles away--as the crow flies maybe closer. I should check into that idea. Thanks for giving me something to do. haha!! MB

I love the color of it with the pinkish sky. Nice shot.

Jacob, I answered your question about the house in the comments on my blog. Thanks for asking. :)

Small City Scenes said...

I think you are right about the bats---something is rattling around in my head. MB

Daryl said...

Snow/rain .. rain/snow .. so the smoke and green trees are a nice change for moi

JM said...

Irene Dunne would have loved this title! :-) Nice capture!

Must be a big chimney/fireplace. Is it THAT cold?

Per Stromsjo said...

Fire places are interesting. Once upon a time no house was considered complete without them. Nowadays it's the opposite, they're almost looked upon with suspicion in terms of risk.

I'm glad it's not a house fire...just smoke from a chimney.

Ilse said...

Wow. Lovely photo!

You never need to leave home for interesting photos now.

Lovely pastels. Almost looks like fog.

Didn't even notice the smoke at first because I was looking at that lovely sky. Nice.
