    Recent (small) forest fires on and around Vancouver Island have made for some hazy skies, and some beautiful skies.

    These were taken on the Swartz Bay-Tsawwassen (Victoria to Vancouver) ferry:




    And this one from a hill overlooking Saanich Inlet and the Strait of Georgia, about an hour before departure--clouds casting shadows in the hazy evening sun:


    All taken with the 17mm f2.8 -- bought used for $160. I can't see how anyone can complain about this lens. :)
