Rain in Paradise

Posted by Joyce (Montana, United States) on 14 September 2017 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

So un-predicted and so needed. around 70 wildfires are going to be seriously challenged. We have snow coming too.

Thank you for your visit and comments. I so enjoy hearing from you and seeing the world through your lens.

Elaine Hancock from Olney, United States

A fabulous image. Wonderful point of view. The fires have been terrible. So much attention has been given to the hurricanes that I think that the fires have been overlooked.

@Elaine Hancock: And this rain and snow and wildfire all at same time is wild. Uniquely Montana

A modest image for big issues . . we are both beneficiaries and victims of climate.

@Shaun: Thanks for visiting and commenting. Wildfire is part of life here. Every place on earth has it's down side, as Eckhart says: The gorgeous tropical island in the peaceful seas has mosquitos and well....hurrincanes.

@Jason Kravitz: Thanks and hi Jason. Our area, north of the Park by 25 miles or so, was safe as was the Park this year, but the North forests and ranch land burned. We are a big state but still, ....The loss of an huge old beloved Lodge in Glacier Park is very sad.

Hiro from Kyoto, Japan

That's me Don. Love this selfie. I had no idea it would be such a good capture of just what I was doing. Watching the storm come to me from a hill across the valley.

karla from Omaha, United States

In Omaha, Nebraska, we have heard about all the fires, including in Montana. In fact, we breathed the fire-smoked air for several days. One of those days, the air turned pinkish gold, as if near sunset. It was quite remarkable, especially after the dimming of the sunlight for the solar eclipse. This image very good, certainly brings to us the world of forest fire seeping closer than one would like to people's homes and lives. I hope the weather continue to bring moderation to help everyone, including the firefighters.
