Did you know my camera won’t take a picture of the sky? Obviously confused, poor darling. This is our sky, with not a cloud in sight. Sounds good? Not quite. You see clouds trap heat, and all the flat desert around us is busy reflecting the sunlight back out into space and not at us. There’s this amazing wind tunnel straight up from Antarctica and across the centre of Australia, we’ve had days that look like this that are -5 degrees celsius. It’s not quite that bad at the moment and when you stand in the sun protected from the wind it’s quite lovely. Just don’t go into the shade.
