All the ships have been varnished Smiley

I was going to photograph them this afternoon but there is a orange/yellow haze caused by the bush fires in Australia about 2,500km away
This has reduced the light available for photos and has a strange yellow cast

Apparently in some parts of the South Island visibility is down to 10km due to the haze, it should be an interesting sunset tonight



I hope every one in Australia is keeping as safe as possible, last I heard 3 had died Sad

Good grief !!  Shocked Shocked

The BBC news has it at 7 deaths in recent days. Sad

Just awful.

I think it's difficult for us in the British Isles to comprehend the distances and areas affected, as we live on a relatively tiny area of land.

I share your sentiments, Paul.

Cheers - Phil

The distance from Sydney to Wellington (NZ) is similar to London to Kiev

The smoke shown above is crossing about 700km of the New South Wales and Victoria coasts, think Dover to Edinburgh

Around 100 fires are burning across just New South Wales, with up to half as yet uncontained

Horrible situation, hooe no one on here is too badly efdected.
 I've friends in Sydney who so far have avoided the fires, but the resulting air quality issues are starting to bite.
Hopefully it will bring the Australian government into a more climate friendly stance.
Enough politics.

I notice that GrumpyOldMan was last active Yesterday at 11:18:40 PM which I take as a good sign

There look to be a couple of fires about 20km from his town but both are under control

The NSW RURAL FIRE SERVICE Fire Near Me page makes for worrying reading https://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/fire-information/fires-near-me

It doesn't look like I'll get to take any pictures of the ships today Sad
