A gloomy winter sky in Mumbai

After last week’s brilliant sunrises, I was terribly disappointed to find my Mumbai cast in a pall of grey smog. Without even the slightest chill, it’s gloomy and grey almost like a monsoon day. I do hope this smog clears up else we’ll be having a winter of coughs and colds.

A brilliant swirl of pink and gold

Feel the glow of the morning sun

A glorious sunrise

And today a sky that’s grey and glum

My city’s vanished in the smog!

You know it’s winter in Mumbai when you see

  • red carrots in the market
  • Tibetan Sweater sellers on the road
  • young girls wearing scarves
  • the city drowns in smog

I’m linking this post to Skywatch Friday which has some amazing skies from round the world.
