Here, as promised, are the slightly blurry iPhone photos of last night’s sun going down amid the smog from forest fires happening two provinces away. All the particulate in the skies is having an effect on not just people’s health, but plant-life and the local farms here about.
There are a lot of dairy farms in our province, and heavy smog affects the cow’s health just as much as ours. It also mars milk output too. Less milk, and the possibility of tainted milk. This kind of weather takes a toll on everything on Planet Earth. And, in the end, we’re all going to pay the price.
Despite the weather going from one extreme to the other, I did manage to get some slightly blurry shots of the moon and stars, this week. Along with some very interesting sunsets/skies (which will follow in another post.)
Note: photos taken with iPhone 7.
Yesterday was one of those perfect summer days of clear blue skies, a gentle warm breeze, and low humidity. So that after lunch my partner said, let’s go to the aquarium … specifically, to the wetland area. We had a two for one entry pass held over because of the pandemic and lockdown. And, well, my partner thought it would be fun to go for a walk and some fresh air.
And, you know what, they were right. We pretty much stayed away from the small number of people that were allowed in. Plus we didn’t go in any of the buildings (for obvious reasons) and kept to ourselves where possible.
All in all, we had fun and we saw some Green Frogs as well. Bonus, right? Anyway, I’m glad we went yesterday as, today, it’s been a lot of rain, thunder down in the valley, and the humidity is up there, again! Lucky us.
