Thanks Frank.  The lens (28/2.8 Ai-S)  surely helps to get the correct ambiance.

Thanks Anthony and Bent for the nice words. Just to add: the picture was captured with some good old equipment, a D200, an SB-28 in Auto mode, and a more modern 35 mm f/1.8 DX.

Fires in California are turning the sky into a spectacle.
Here is a shot looking West as the Pacific fog rolls over the hills towards San Francisco Bay.
