Amazing Ian. Does the eucalyptus resin really vapourise like this? It almost looks as if there is a group of very heavy smokers in the valley. :)

Dear Amelia,

I understand that the vaporisation may affect the light colour spectrum rather than the visibility of the air. Anyway whatever the physics, I see and have photograped this phenomenon here and never in other regions of the world.

Dear Keziah,

Thanks for your visit and nice comment. I see you have been visiting the Blue Mountains through Google Earth and Panoramio. Have you ever been to Australia, or are you likely to come? Greetings to Hong Kong from Sydney.
