Smoke

Igor Podgorny: On the path of the fire in the Volgograd oblast

“Dov’è gran fuoco, è gran fumo”, where there is great fire, there is also great smoke, asserts Paolo Giovio in the motto of the emblem of Odet de Foix. His wisdom is well illustrated by the pictures published in last month about Russian cities, from which we have also published some here and here. At the peak of the fires, on August 6 the Photopolygon portal announced a “flash competition” with the title Лето и дым, “Summer and smoke”. We have browsed among the photos received.

the opening picture of the Chongqing series. The smoke renders these images
the same lyrical as the vapor of the Yangtze does those ones.
