Due to Wildfires

I was able to make this image in Pennsylvania due to the wildfires on the west coast of the United States.  Furthermore, since climate changes have increased the number, size, and ferocity of the fires, this image was made possible by climate changes.

The fires have generated so much smoke that it has created a haze over Pennsylvania.  Not only did the haze reduce our temperatures by restricting the amount of heat reaching us from the sun, it also reduced and diffused the sunlight.  Because of that, I was able to point my camera almost straight into the sun and make this image to show how the rose looks with light going through the rose petals.
