SMOKE

The theme this week by Craver is "Smoke". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that. 

This is my smoke header photo. The sky filled with smoke from a forest fire at Horwood Lake Lodge in Timmons, Ont. Canada.
This is the reason I like this with a water loaded plane going toward the smoke.

This was my first view of the smoke.
It wasn't long until the water planes came in.
This is one of the planes working on the smoke.
It was a smoky fire.
See what the others have shown on my sidebar.

Fantastic shots!! Some really good action photos.. We have had a dry summer here in the mountains, and last night was a wicked lightning storm, so I pray there weren't any fires... hope you are doing well.

Fabulous photos!
A fire is always a scary thing. Rural Ontario depends so heavily on volunteers, too.

Great report of the fire Tom, with plenty of smoke.

Great pictures -- scary, but you have captured them so well, Tom, as always! Hope you're enjoying a great week!

Great shots of the airborne firefighters! There has been too many such fires this year.

This was not a good occasion, but you were in a good place to capture an excellent shot! I also like your close-up of the airplane.

beautiful scary photos...smoke near woods terrify me. Maybe it is because we are surrounded by forests, and I worry about fire...but lovely none the less
