Smoke Haze Sunset by onewing

Smoke Haze Sunset

Yesterday we were out for lunch with friends and as we have had so many lunches and dinners out in the last couple of weeks, we decided that we needed a serious walk on the beach. So last night after arriving home and getting changed into our shorts and tee shirts etc off we went for a long walk just before sunset.

You can see in this picture just how much smoke haze there is in the sky from bushfires up and down the coast.

Today is rather windy and at last we can see the occasional clouds again and not just the thick smoky sky.

Thanks so much for your lovely comments and favs over the last few days. I am pretty busy at the moment but will catch up on your photos this afternoon and evening.

It makes a great sunset shot ... just a shame as to how it is achieved... Best time of the day to take a walk ..

Beautiful shot. Smoke does seem to make wonderful sunsets, but that’s about the only good thing. We are finally getting a good soak so fire danger should be less for some months now. Hope your fires are out soon.

awful as it is, the bushfire smoke makes a wonderful sunset. Our coast house village has been evacuated, so now we watch and wait!

The smoke really makes quite a scene on the beach front. It's a super image but I hope the smoke clears up for you soon. :)

An amazing capture of the hazy red sky and of the silhouettes of th beach walkers. I hope the fires are under control.
December 2nd, 2019  
The smoke/haze makes it a very pretty picture, but I hope the fires will be over and done with soon.

The smoke made a rich wonderful color for sunset

Guess that is one plus about your fires -makes for a beautiful shot

Radio said that there are more than 130 fires. Poor firefighters.
December 2nd, 2019  
Great silhouettes and composition. Fav!! 😀

A super sunset and great silhouettes. Just a shame that it was smoke haze that helped cause the sky to be that colour. Fav!

It’s a great sunset sky but thinking of the firefighters and the people loosing their homes, it makes it quiet sad!
December 2nd, 2019  
Great photo, hope the firefighters were safe.
December 2nd, 2019  
Beautiful colors and great silhouettes.
December 2nd, 2019  
The smoke probably contributes to the color but not to anyone's health
December 2nd, 2019  
Stunning colours and silhouettes
December 2nd, 2019

A stunning image with the silhouettes in front of the beautiful water. So sorry about the fires.
December 3rd, 2019  
I love the sky colour but feel bad it's because of smoke!
December 3rd, 2019  
It's absolutely gorgeous, but I do share the ambivalence expressed by @kwind
December 3rd, 2019  
@pusspup Oh no is that the fire near Batemans Bay? Hope your home is safe.

Luckily we only have one fire burning currently near us but with over 120 fires currently burning across New South Wales I think more smoke will head our way before the fires are put out. We have had fires since June but currently it is really bad. According to the news over 2 million hectares of bushland had been burnt since June.

@onewing yes indeed it is, still waiting on what will happen but we know it is very close.
December 3rd, 2019  
Beautiful
December 4th, 2019  
Like the groups of three. Good luck re the fires
December 4th, 2019  
@onewing I dread to think what will happen once the summer heat arrives down here. We're having a prolonged burst of wintry weather. Five layers for golf today.
December 4th, 2019  
Great sunset shot- it's hard to imagine that much smoke- but we sure hope it all comes to an end soon.
December 4th, 2019  
Love the luminous waves and sunset colours.
