15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Yosemite with a smoky haze from the fire
Taken late summer 2017 - while there were fires in the southern part of Yosemite. The smoke makes it look like a composite - with the trees and 2 waterfalls. However, it is a single photograph - with nature providing smoky backdrops and color differences. Notice the lower waterfall in a different quality of light.
