September of 2020 is experiencing a record-breaking wildfire season stretching through California, Oregon and Washington states. Here in Vancouver, with air currents pushing the smoke north from the USA, September 12 through 14 saw the air quality reach the worst levels of any major city on the globe.
These four photographs of the sun peering through the smoke were made from 10:30am on September 12 at exposures of 30, 500, 16 and 142 seconds (clockwise from top left).
