From the sunset to the smoke: Both sides of the sky

We have all heard that the flip side of the vivid sunsets and sunrises is smoke from fires burning in central and eastern Washington. Here is a view of some of them, courtesy of West Seattle pilot/photographer Long Bach Nguyen:

He says the photograph was taken near Cle Elum.
