Sunday Selections #459





Sunday Selections was originally brought to us by Kim, of Frogpondsrock, as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files.

Huge thanks to Cie who gave me this wonderful Sunday Selections image.
  
The meme was then continued by River at Drifting through life.  Sadly she has now stepped aside (though she will join us some weeks), and I have accepted the mantle.
 
The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent.  Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to me. Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen. 
 
I usually run with a theme.  This week, as I so often do, I am featuring skyscapes.


These first images were taken just after dawn.






A brooding and heavy sky, with dust coloured highlights.

These next images were taken later in the day (over the course of several days).








 Sunset?

Rich, glowing sunsets?

Well not exactly.  These were taken in the late afternoon.  The smoke, dust and ash from fires has enveloped our city for the last ten days or so.  When the wind gets up it blows the debris from the fires and the drought across the sky and obscures the sun.

It is expected to continue to do so for the next week (assuming that no new fires break out).  The media has reported that our air quality has been worse than that experienced in China, and vulnerable people have been warned to stay indoors.

Since the fires started on the Eastern Coast of Australia 2.7 million hectares of bush have burned!!!!  The damage is incalculable.  And this is the start of our bushfire season, and my city is experiencing a tiny part of it.  Other places have it much worse.

And, at the moment some of New South Wales and Western Australia is being hit.  Hard.  In the week to come record breaking high temperatures are predicted across the country.

Scary, scary times.

  1. That is some heavy smoke and debris. Fire is a scary thing - one giant, unpredictable killer.

  2. I am so worried about people in Oz. My dearest, best friend, tells me daily about the smoke. I hope the drought ends, the rain falls and brings healing.

    Good morning, dear. How are you?

    I love the first photo with the cat.

  4. The news on these dreadful fires does not seem to be getting better. I saw a picture just yesterday of the opera house in Sydney, enshrouded in particulate matter and barely visible. I also saw very distressing images of koalas burned in the trees where they were feeding. It is a disaster of mammoth dimensions and the whole world should stand in solidarity with Australia in mourning its loss and offering whatever assistance is possible in dealing with the aftermath of this conflagration.

    1. David M. Gascoigne: It is heartbreaking, and there is no end in sight. Some reports estimate that over 20000 koalas have been lost, and many, many more species have also been hit hard.

  5. What a dreadful, sad situation. I read the air quality is so hazardous that some people are wearing masks and school age children are kept at home some days. Can not imagine the high levels of anxiety and fear people are living with at this time.

  6. I too love the cat profile, and commiserate over these awful fires. The whole world, it seems is trying to deal with extreme events everywhere. My heart goes out to those who are suffering, which is pretty much all of us. :-(

  11. Queensland is being, and has been hit, too, EC. The fires are widespread. I've just come home from a brief trip out, and the valley to the west below of us here is still shrouded in thick smoke as it has been for the past few months. Already the humidity and heat is debilitating this morning...and it's only 8 am as I type.

    I see Jazz is out for a stroll. Cuddles to him from me. I hope your week ahead treats you all kindly. :)

    2. The eruption was horrific, as were the deaths and injuries - so many deaths, and critical burns for the survivors. The rescuers did a fantastic job.

      Jacinda is one of a kind. We are lucky to have her.

    3. Alexia: The rescuers did indeed do a fabulous job, and it can't have been easy on them either. I asked a colleague from my voluntary work who visited your country last week to kidnap Jacinda. She failed.

  17. Love the first photograph of Jazz.

    Your sky photographs are amazing too … but the fires that are being experienced are just dreadful. We do see images on our news channels, and wish there was something more that could be done.

  18. Hate to rub it in, but we had a storm last night and the first rain for ages washed the air clean again.
    Yesterday, the whole coastline and the ranges to the west were greyed-out with smoke from the southern fires.For people whose grasp of Australian distances is uncertain...I live about 1000 miles north of Sydney.

  24. The third through fifth photos remind me of the sun on the ocean. And it is so good to see Jazz.

    Although the rest of the photos are stunning, the conditions that created those skies are sad and haunting. I don't know what will eventually become of our beautiful world and the creatures in it - your country's terrible losses and danger are a warning that is not being heard.

  32. I like the early morning as the sun rises or is hidden by clouds. In summer I often walk at that time as it is still a bit cool.

    The beauty of a picture can betray what is really going on. The haziness of your sunset pictures .... who would know it was or could be deadly? I look from afar but realize some could be in great danger.

  35. Just a cat.

    That's how they thought of Blackie, a fluffy, whispering and purring kitty to feed and care for. Oh, how he needed them, so small and defenseless and loved. But each morning Blackie would climb to the roof of his keepers' humble dwelling and pull the sun into the sky. He'd arrange the clouds in the air with his tail like a painter at an easel. Then, joyously, contentedly, and at great peace, Blackie would return to his place by the fire, exhausted. He would sleep most of the day, waking only to eat and cuddle. He needed to build up his strength because when morning returned it would be his job to lift the sun.

    1. Jo: The smoke, ash and dust are awful. I am also worried for the wildlife. There are reports that we have lost 2000 koalas, and I fear that many other birds and animals are also in grave danger, including some that while less cute are no less irreplaceable.

    2. Must be terrible for people with breathing difficulties. We hear about the koala's plight because everyone thinks they are cut, but not so much about the less cute unfortunately. You have such unique wildlife in Australia it will be terrible to lose it. One hopes that if necessary, your zoos will have members of the lost critters.

      Delete
    3. Jo: It is indeed terrible for people with breathing difficulties - across a wide area. I am very worried about a lot of our wildlife, even those who survive the fires will have had their habitat and food destroyed. There are groups working to help (including some I support) but it is a huge job.

California has had terrible fires in the past years but Oregon here has somehow been spared. (so far). We had a wet cool summer this last year, however, so that helped. The polluted air is horrible when combined with heat. The smoke shrouded sun photos are nice though, EC.
