Smoky Hobart

Well we've had a week of bushfires all over the state, especially up on the East Coast, where a few town lost homes and buildings. I don't think any lives were lost though. But on Wednesday, the smoke over Hobart was crazy. Here's a pic of the city, taken from Huon Road at 7:30 pm (sorry it's badly joined up, but I don't have software on this computer for fixing things like that). Anyone who's seen Hobart from this road will know this is a crazy amount of smoke - normally those hills are as clear as day - can usually see all the houses and streets on them.

Here's the mountain from Huon Road. That's usually pretty clear, but not on Wednesday.

Here's a smoky sunset.

And the Mountain again.
