Almost Last Light

Last light was pretty early today. Fires in Southern California left the sky very dark with smoke. A few minutes after this picture was shot, the sun vanished - not below the horizon, but in the cloud of smoke is is starting to be obscured by in this photo. To appreciate how dark it was when this was shot, consider that it was shot into the sun f16 and 1/200 second at ISO 800.
