Smoke on the Water

Remember the Deep Purple song from the 70s?  Well, you won't find that here.  This is a calm peaceful day - no drums or electric guitars. 

Travelling on the Marble Canyon road one day, I noticed someone burning brush on the hillside.  The air was fairly calm so the smoke settled over the lake.  It looked eerie and surreal so I stopped and snapped some pics. 

Can't you almost see canoes silently sliding out into view - like in Lord of the Rings or maybe Last of the Mohicans?  Paddles silently dipping in the lake  OR do you now hear the first guitar riffs of the song - DUH DUH DUUHH  Duh Duh Duh Duh . . . ?
