Early morning light, smoke and fog at Sparks Lake in the Central Oregon Cascades.

This is another image from the morning I spent at Sparks Lake in September. The golden glow here was created by the sun rising through the smoke from the Pole Creek Fire. The amount of smoke in the air was incredible and it smelled like a huge campfire was burning close by!

Thanks for taking a look and for any comments you have.
