Controlled Burn As A Light Modifier

Smoke Gets In Your Eyes

They were burning off some areas of Mountain Pine Beetle killed forest in Yoho National Park a few weeks ago. The smoke drifted into Alberta and down the Bow Valley. In some areas it was so thick, it almost blocked out the sun. The light that did penetrate the smoke had brownish orange cast to it, that you rarely see naturally. There was only one area that was thick enough area to give me this nice of tone. I liked the gradation of darkness from the foreground trees to the background mountains.

Have you seen any really nice natural light lately?

In the best light…
