Photo Location: Morro Bay, CA
During the summer of 2020, the West Coast of the USA was engulfed in wildfires. California had the most of them. The largest one - Creek Fire, didn't happen till September, however, smaller fires ravaged many forests including the one in Big Sur(also one of the most attractive places to photography for famous landscape photographers). As the fires burned, most of the smoke traveled south, along the pacific coast. Covering everything in its way with thick, hard to see and especially difficult to breathe, smoke.
The situation was nearly apocalyptic. Air quality in Los Angeles was so poor, people tried to escape north thinking they will find a refuge near the ocean. But it was nearly impossible to find clean air unless you went higher into the mountain ranges.
Morro bay, my most favorite coastal community on the central coast. It brings tourists from everywhere to enjoy fresh seafood at local restaurants, participate in water activities like boat tours and visit local art galleries. It was also covered in thick, heavy smoke. Each night, when the sun set, it made the surroundings appear almost gold-ish. No matter how spectacular the view, I truly hope this was a once in a lifetime experience, for many people have lost their homes and their lives were devastated as result! Mother nature is not to play around with!
