Weather Report

I am a big fan of the golden light that comes about at certain times of the year - most noticeably Autumn (or Fall for the Americans). I awoke this morning to beautiful golden light. But not the good kind (which only comes in the afternoon anyway). This is a massive dust storm in which the top soil from the west of the state has been picked up and is being carried across the state. Sydney (5 hours south) was a brilliant red but has now faded to the gold that the rest of us is experiencing.
It is a great time for photographers (this shot was taken from underneath the Sydney Harbour Bridge) but not so good for the farmers.

How ghastly! Can't imagine experiencing one first hand.
