Hazy skies caused by the Australian bush fires are set to linger this weekend.
Northwesterly winds have blown a hazy plume of smoke across the Tasman Sea, and while it has mostly affected the South Island in recent weeks, it has moved up the country.
The "robust plume" is expected to head to the South Island late on Saturday.
The haze has been causing a yellowish-orange, hue at sunset, making for some sweet sunset photos. Share your photos in the comments!

Come along and get a free hug or two or better still contact our organiser to volunteer and get hundreds of hugs and make some peoples day. The buzz you get from giving so many hugs will keep you smiling for days.
