Photographer's Note

Well it's neither bad weather nor dense fog. Just wanted to give you an idea of what we're going through at the moment.
It's +38C and it should have been sunny but you won't see the sun no matter where you go. The whole city and the country around it have been covered with heavy smoke from forest and peatbog fires for a couple of weaks already. But the last two days were a real nightmare. I couldn't see anything 10 meters from my window and there's no escape from this caustic smoke whatsoever. And right now as I'm typing it's getting worse again.
Don't know how long we can stand this before we start suffocating.
