See J3472 : Annadale Flats, Belfast. Some of the blocks, overlooking the Annadale Embankment, close to Sunnyside Street. The gloomy mist is probably the Sahara dust mentioned in the shared description (below).
Sahara dust smog, Belfast (April 2014) :: J3478

The effects (mainly smog, dust settled on vehicles and difficulties for asthmatics) of the wind-carried dust from the Sahara Desert have made news in the last few days (April 2014). The worst has been in parts of England although there were media reports of the material in NI. Today’s “Independent” recorded “Saharan dust and record levels of air pollution will continue to plague the UK today, leading experts to advise schools to keep children indoors in the worst affected parts of England. A perfect storm of dust from the Sahara, emissions from the Continent, low south-easterly winds and domestic pollution has caused air quality to plummet while pollution levels soar in England and Wales. The smog-like conditions are forecast to remain until Friday [4 April 2014]”. The dust is explained in this link LinkExternal link.
The photographs submitted by me show what might be Sahara dust. I am not a scientist or meteorologist and it’s quite possible that I am completely wrong.
