This morning, Sydney resembled  the desert dust storm that hit the Silverton campsite, 11 am 29 June 2009.

Cats have a ‘sixth’ sense. My cat woke me at sunrise, meowing and seeking comfort. But from what? Lifting the blind, I found a blood-red sky! The phone woke me at 6am , What’s going on? By then, the streetscape was yellow.

Today, the Big Twenty, meet in New York discussing climate change. China declared 15% renewable energy by 2020, USA and Australia must win Senate approval………..

Both photos were downloaded straight from my Ixus 100IS, without any manipulation, or  colour change.
