Sunrise on Brighton Beach

I took these photos a while ago. I was making use of my insomnia. At 4 am one morning I walked down to the beach and took these sunrise photos. The colours have not been altered. I may have experimented a little with the aperture and shutter-speed, but as the sun rose above the colours and then was hidden again from view, the colours changed. A man stood on the beach singing worship songs and welcomed the new day. Joggers worshiped their own bodies as they ran past, oblivious to the beauty that was emerging beyond. A plane takes off, with the start of the new day, new adventures await those on board the plane. The rowing crew pauses for a breather and watch as God paints the sky. I included a few photos from the other side of the bay, which I took at Sunset a few nights later. I have presented these photos as a slideshow. Enjoy and feel free to share it.

Clouds block lunar eclipse

5:40pm was supposedly the best time for Sydneysiders to view the eclipse this afternoon. Unfortunately the sky was full of rainclouds so we missed out on seeing the blood red moon that was promised.
At that time, I was just about to get in my car to travel to my creative writing group. I looked to the sky to discover I was on the edge of the storm, so snapped these shots with my phone before setting out on my journey. The clouds were coloured by the blood red moon which they hid. Hope you enjoy these pics.
