Portal into the Light

We had a warmer-than-spring-weather day today, and by this afternoon the valley looked hazy and dull. Then the whole appearance changed.

A huge cane fire in the valley sent smoke wafting westward, across toward the mountain, helping out the sunset in turning the sky smoky-orange in colour.

The sugar cane fire was a douzy! Rarely do we see the fires this big, and it burned for longer than usual as well. The valley quickly filled with smoke, and as I took a photo of the striking appearance of the sky, I couldn’t help but notice the dark clouds accumulated over the mountain, the dark near-nighttime valley below, and the inviting portal of light shining behind the mountain. 🙂
