Natural landscapes: the smoky layers of mountains


The summer of 2018 has been very bad for forest fires in the Canadian province of British Columbia. Smoke from more than 300 fires has often drifted east into Alberta and made normally blues skies murky and dull. I made the best of this situation, finding a good viewpoint to photograph seven layers (count ’em!) of sky, mountain and forest.
Nikon D7100, tripod, 70-300 mm. lens, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
