Hazy skies caused by the tragic 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!

I am 25 years old and from Germany. I’ve been here since 5 years and need to find a new place very soon. I am very tidy, respectful and just wanting to have a quiet and peaceful place.
I am looking for a one bedroom flat somewhere on the north shore for only myself and my little chihuahua lady (14yrs) - she only sleeps during the day and isn’t loud, nor will disturb anyone. I am restaurant manager on the shore and would like a nice place to call my home. I’ve got furniture myself (couch, beds, drawers, fridge etc) Id like to ideally take them with me, but if there’s something nice, I could find a way to store it.
If you know anyone or anything, please let me know ☺️
