This photo was taken in May 2009 and is typical of a misty autumnal morning in my hometown. Bridgetown has a couple of nicknames, ‘Smoketown’ and ‘Fridgetown.’ At night it is one of the coldest places in Western Australia; it is also one of the smokiest from autumn to early spring as most residents fire up their 24/7 wood fires and get bonfires going as there is an open fire ban during summer.

    It gives a rather soft background though doesn’t it.

  • I suppose so, but sometimes you don’t know if its smoke or mist, unless you can also smell it.
