Weekly Photo - 30/01/2011 "Smokey Sydney"

Over the past few weeks the NSW Rural Fire Service and Fire & Rescue NSW have taken the opportunity to conduct Hazard Reduction burns (Often referred to as "Burn Offs") in the Sydney area to minimize risk if there was to be a major bush fire. This has put a lot of smoke particles into the air leading to some stunning sunsets all over Sydney. This week i will be posting two photos to show both aspects of the HR Burns.

1) This photo was taken at a Hazard Reduction Burn being conducted by Fire & Rescue NSW in Beecroft on January 27th

2) The view from North Head looking back through the smoke particles towards the Sydney CBD.
