This morning, the world was blanketed in a thick, cold haze that reduced visiblity to less than a hundred metres, and had my hands turning purple when I rode to my local cafe this morning.
Two hours later, the mist suddenly dissolved, and the sky became blue to the edge of the universe virtually instantaneously. A sky so clear has been a rare sight this whole year, there wasn't a single cloud to be seen for the entire afternoon. Visibility was miles from atop Beacon Hill.
Tonight will surely be cold and clear. A night for astronomy while clad in my warmest clothes.
I present you with these pictures, all unfiltered and uncropped just to give you a genuine idea of the colours on view today, especially during my 10km run this afternoon. It was lovely.
