The Dunedin Forest Fires

A spark from a logging truck around Mt Allen outside Dunedin created an out-of-control fire which burned for over three days. These images were taken on the second day, first one (above) mid afternoon from Andersons bay Rd South Dunedin of the smoke plume hovering over the suburb of Mornington. Below sunset about 8.30pm looking over the Kaikorai Estuary.

Above left: again looking over the Kaikorai Estuary about 8am with the cloud plume brushing over the top of Saddle Hill. Above right: taken from my front gate at about 9pm with the smoke Haze pushing down over saddle Hill. Below, just after 9pm light fading from my front gate again.
