Another dust storm reaches NSW


New dust storm has hit NSW this morning. It was not as severe as the one pictured here from 23rd of September, never the less the visibility has been greatly reduced and the duct particles were easily detectable during breathing. Authorities issued another health warning for the asthmatics.

Scientists are afraid the dust storm has originated from Woomera in South Australia, where the uranium is mined, thus raising a possibility the dust may carry radioactive particles. If proven true this would indeed be a serious health hazard for everyone in NSW and QLD.

Predawn at Terrigal


I went to the beach really early today. It was a beautiful, clear morning. Actually to clear for a interesting landscape. My usual spot around the base of Skillion looked frankly dull. I packed up my tripod and moved to the top of the hill leading to the sport oval. This vantage point spans entire Terrigal beach.

There was a thin crescent of the Moon and last star visible on a beautifully blue sky, while at the horizon the yet to rise sun provided for a hazy strawberry cream colour layer.

The scene for this landscape photograph looked very serene. Cold morning provided for good, crystal clear visibility.

One of the fishing boats started its trip out to the ocean. This is the point in time I have selected to capture this view. Everything quite beautiful and dreamy and at the same time there is this little human elements of fishermen going after their catch.
