I could not stop myself from going out again and take more photos of this morning’s fog in Fremantle.

I drove along the Swan river to Blackwall Reach and Point Walter to take these images.

SMOKE HAZE OVER FREMANTLE

Posted in fremantle, fremantle port, photography, smoke, Uncategorized by freoview on May 13, 2017

 

 

I got up a few hours later than I normally do on a Saturday morning but there was still plenty of smog around when I drove onto the Fremantle South Mole.

Fog always reminds me of my youth in the Netherlands where we had plenty of it and where my newspaper run on the bicycle sometimes could take twice as long because I could not see further than twenty metres.

Nice also to bump into Diana on Victoria Quay who was taking photos for the lovely on-line magazine: http://fremantleshippingnews.com.au

SMOKE HAZE BLANKETS FREMANTLE

port-haze

The smoke haze over Fremantle was not a very pretty sight at all until the Fremantle Doctor blew it away after midday. It was quite smelly and unpleasant as well, so no wonder I’ve got a headache.

BUSH FIRE SMOKE BLANKETS FREMANTLE

Not sure we should be too worried about passive smoking in Fremantle when the bush fire smoke blankets our city far too often. Some morons set fire near Kwinana yesterday and one could barely see the Freo Townhall from the Roundhouse in the afternoon.

This is what it looked like at Bathers Beach.

The smoke haze over Fremantle continues and gives it a lovely soft look in the early morning as these photos show.

SMOKE HAZE TO STAY FOR A WHILE

Posted in fremantle, smoke by freoview on February 7, 2015

smoke haze

With a heat wave expected on the weekend and beyond the smoke haze over the city is likely to stay, and I’ll check it out at sunrise today. While it is not very good for our health it creates stunning orange-coloured sunsets.

Here a photo I took at Victoria Quay at Fremantle harbour on midday on Friday.

SMOGING IS BAD FOR YOU

Posted in fremantle, health, smoke by freoview on February 6, 2015

I woke up from the intense smell of smoke last night and there was quite a bit of smog over Fremantle early this morning.

I must admit I quite like the smell of natural smoke that comes from the bush fires, but I feel for people who suffer from asthma. No doubt the sea breeze will blow all the smoke inland later in the day but I wonder if the announced heatwave will blanket the metropolitan area in smog over the weekend.

Here some photos taken from Monument Hill around 8 am.

SMOKE HAZE SMOTHERS FREMANTLE

Posted in Uncategorized by freoview on January 5, 2014

I woke up to the smell of smoke this morning, and on my way to have a coffee I noticed heavy smoke haze all over Fremantle. On returning home I read a smoke warning has been given for the area from Denmark to Geraldton, and people on Facebook claim there are fires at Walpole and Denmark causing the smog over the city.

One has to feel for asthma sufferers who might be struggling a bit for air today. Hopefully the seabreeze will get rid of the smoke.

PERFECT VALENTINE’S SUNSET

Posted in fremantle by freoview on February 14, 2012

Is there a more perfect end to Valentine’s Day than the amazing sunset we had in Fremantle today, thanks to the bushfires down south. The smog, called haze by some, was around us from early morning and the smell of smoke was everywhere. I felt sorry for asthma sufferers. But love was in the air, so all those romantics would have loved it.
