(above)From the same scenic pulloff photographed on Sunday, May 30, 2010 after the smoke from the wildfires around Quebec moved over New Hampshire. What looks to be a haze is actually smoke from the wildfires.  Last known there were around 50 wildfires burning around the Quebec area. Media reports some of these fires are out of control.

Above is another shot from the Kancamagus Highway covered in smoke. The last few days have been bad "Air Quality" days and the smell of smoke has lingered. Hope they manage to get control of the Wildfires.

Happy image making……
