I had previously posted some beautiful sunset pictures I took from Belmont baths last week. In contrast, with all the smoke from bushfires increasing. This is what it is like this afternoon.
Last Sunday, I met with a photography group to capture the sunset from Belmont Baths, which is on the east side of Lake Macquarie in NSW Australia. It is usually a spectacular place for sunsets. This week it was made even more so with the smoke in the air from the bushfires. One bushfire was directly west of the lake, which made the sunset very dramatic. I hope you enjoy the sunset, created by God, captured by me.
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.
This is what Captain Cook would have seen on sunset when he sailed through the heads of Botany Bay Sydney in 1770
