With wildfires burning throughout the province, an air quality advisory from environment Canada was posted for most of BC. Vancouver was ranked as the 5th worst major city in the world for air quality. One source said breathing that air was the equivalent of smoking 5 cigarettes a day.
Breathing has been difficult up here in the Cariboo region the last few days as well, but today the temperatures dropped and this evening it began to rain…then pour….briefly! What a relief. I was so excited I jumped into my truck and headed out with my camera.
I soon stopped and made this image through my windshield. One can just see the 105 barn on the far left.
Further down the road I stopped at the old Monical ranch. While still inside my vehicle, I made this image of the old homestead. By focusing more on the raindrops on the windshield that the building, I endeavored to capture the mood of the place.
