Subject: [Leica] IMG: sunflowers and wildfire smoke

About 30 miles from here to the NW there?s a major wildfire burning in the 
Vaca Range. I think it?s at 60,000 acres and only about 7% contained as of 
the news last night.

About a half-hour before sunset we drove out west of town to see what we 
could see and found this field of sunflowers with the smoke blowing in.


Sony A7Riii, 28-70 f2.8 G series lens at ISO 1250 or so.

We aren?t threatened in any way - there?s a sea of farmland between us and 
the fire - some of it rice fields that just aren?t that likely to burn? But 
for those in the path of the fire things are looking grim. The firefighters 
say fires like this usually happen several months later in the year. Fire 
season in California may become a 12 month event.
