Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii
This photo was taken just about a year ago, on the morning of Oct. 28, 2007. There was a large wildfire in an area a few miles down the coast from where I live. The smoke plume from the fire wafted out across the ocean, and was visible from my back garden. The smoke spoiled what had been a beautiful clear blue-sky day. By the way, in case you are wondering, the fire burned a large area of open land, but there were no injuries, and no houses were burned.
