Patricia Lake – Jasper (Don’t Let the Smoke Get in Your Eyes)

Obviously, none of us was happy that the forest fire smoke was spoiling our little bit of Paradise, but, it could have been worse. We could have been in the area where the fires were burning. Nothing for it, but to make the best of it. Actually, some of the shots were made a little more mysterious by the smoke. The smokey air did fool my Auto Focus a bit, if there was nothing in the foreground to focus on. Apologies for that.

Don’t Let the Smoke Get in Your Eyes

It still looked like our fav’rite lake,

’til smoky air our view did take.

Nothing for it but to walk down,

hoping smiles would replace our frowns.

Sooty air from distant wildfire,

muted lake views meant to inspire.

Just as all hope began to fade,

we found beauty was still displayed.

When you find yourself ‘neath grey skies,

don’t let the smoke obscure your eyes.

  1. Yes, at least the snow has no lingering odour. Our +28 feels like +36 is now +4 feels like -30 in Matane. Great supper tonight and now cozy inside our B & B. Hoping for clearer weather tomorrow at Perce. Thanks for reading and commenting. Allan
