The fires from California have filled the atmosphere with smoke and that has made its way to Texas. The sun setting through that haze in the upper sky gave an almost gray cast to the sky except where the sun peaked through and that fire red ball just mesmerized me. Two thoughts went through my mind. One was how connected all of us is this planet. Fires in California are affecting the sky in Texas. Earlier this year (2020) the sky looked similar only it was from a dust plum from the Sahara desert in Africa. So often it is easy to get caught in our own little bubble and forget we really are one planet. Nature doesn't much attention to our boundaries and human-made lines of geography.
The other thought was along those lines. I look at California as a different state when really that is just an artificial boundary we humans put on that. This photo was shot with a 600 mm lens. Its called forced perspective. From where I was standing the windmill was tiny and the sun much smaller even but with a zoom lens I make them both so much larger for my lens and oddly sized. The perspective my zoom lens gives me distorts their sizes in a neat artsy kind of way. But so much of our life depends on where and how we are looking at things. Knowing that is the key to understanding what is reality and what is merely the distortion of our view.
