Yes, This Is A Winter Sky In Melbourne
We get a lot of blue skies during our winters here in Australia - and just to prove it, here are a couple of shots I took two Fridays ago. Let me put it all in context for you, however. The coldest nights produce the clearest days. No you don't have to be Einstein to work that out. Let me explain.
A clear sky at night will produce the lowest temperatures, because there is no breeze or cloud cover to keep the land (or land-based objects) warm. So on mornings when my car is covered in a thick layer of ice that even makes the doors difficult to open, I know that the sky is going to be blue for most of the day.
So last Friday, while most of you were enjoying your balmy temperatures, I was de-icing my car and planning what sky shots I was going to take later in the day. And in case you're wondering about the shot below, I haven't flipped my lid. It really does depict the sky - reflected in the chrome exhaust pipe of a motorbike.
