Parting shot - Tim Lyden, of Bend, captured this photo of a weather vane with his Canon 7-D with a 24-105mm lens at 105mm, 1/80 sec., f/13.0, ISO 200, and daylight white balance. “I snapped this photo from home when it appeared that the rooster on the adorned weather vane seems to take a shot out of the setting sun in one of our recent smoke-filled skies," he wrote.
