The wild fires to the east and south of us are filling the valley with smoke. Everything has an eerie yellow cast to it.  The mountains in the distance are obscured. The air smells like wherever the smoke has come from, the burn was hot.  News reports the fires are 0% contained which explains everything.

From Wikipedia: En plein air (French pronunciation: ​[ɑ̃ plɛn ɛʁ]) is a French expression which means "in the open air" and is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors.
