Beautiful pictures from a truly horrible day, the dust wasnt nearly that bad where I live.

I heard about it all because my family lives in Sydney. There are some interesting pictures on the SMH site of the bridge and such.

Kind of reminds me of fires, with the red sky. After the Canberra fires I always get freaked out by stuff like that.

We occasionally get dust storms here as well. I've seen dust drifted like snow on the sides of the roads :shock: yucky stuff. We have been fortunate and haven't had drought conditions in a few years.
Thanks for starting this thread. The photos are phenomenal. Does it make the sunsets pretty like it does here?

My parents live in Western Sydney and here are the photos they sent me, as you can see the flash highlighted all the dust, whoops but you can see the dark orange sky at 1pm in the afternoon!!!
