I smelled something burning, and commented, “I smell incense burning,” assuming it was a street vendor hawking his product for tourists. But as we walked away from the station, we not only realized there were no street vendors nearby, but that a large cloud of smoke was growing very close to where we were walking.
I have reached the point where the well documented dos-and-don’ts of Milky Way photography have been ditched. “Only shoot during moonless nights”. Nope. “Only shoot during clear skies.” Negatory.
