I make an effort to head out to photograph the local landscape every day. Quite often I will head out for sunrise (usually at one of the local beaches) and, if the skies are looking good I’ll head out for sunset too. In a sense these collections are like photo diaries too as I often make note of anything that catches my eye.
The sky wasn’t looking too impressive until about five minutes after it actually set, when some surprise colour lit up the horizon.
It would have been quite a boring blue sky sunset but for the fact that bushfire smoke from hundreds of miles away was channeled south and created moody orange skies.
