What a nice array of skies. They are truly lovely in composition and color.

Marvellous shots.

So dreadful about the smoke in the Similkameen Valley. The smoke from the BC forest fires reached all the way through eastern Alberta to Saskatchewan and even parts of Manitoba.

Fantastic sequence of shots. I love the windmill in the first one and then the peach color of the clouds towards the end are breathtaking in their beauty.

The clouds are gorgeous, but I think my favorite shot is the first one with the windmill and barn roof! I think late summer/early autumn is the best time for sky shots...

Amazing skies over the mountains.
Happy SWf. Enjoy your weekend.

I think the smoke, though nasty to smell, is creating some beautiful filters for the sky.

Your first three beautiful photos reminded me of the Smoky Mountains of Viginia, where my grandparents lived! There were coke ovens in the vicinity and often smoky skies could be seen!

The Blue Ridge Mts (where we're traveling now) look a lot like that , smoky and hazy. We are happy to see mountains at all after months in flat country!
