Sunset…

Same evening about five minutes

after the sun disappeared.

Hope you enjoyed.

As the sun was sinking slowly in the west,

this combine harvester

(also known as a ‘Header’ at least in Victoria), was…

was still trundling tis way around the paddock,

harvesting as many  headers of grain

before it became too damp to continue.

I spent nearly an hour on our balcony watching and photographing

the Disney Wonder being overtaken by the Noordam.

This was around midnight and the weather

could only be described as balmy.

My fascinating was the hour the sun was setting

as we progressed further north.

A June sunset is around 1700 in

Victoria (Down Under) in June.

These may not be considered magical lights by some…

and I may have been a bit carried away with my shooting…

 

but all these photos were taken between…

2200 hours and 0300 hours.

And true the Disney Wonder was lit up,

but she appeared to be a buoy

when I first sighted her around 2300,

so far astern we were.

And it took us the best part of an hour’s sailing to over take her.

It was moments like these that I was happy

to have a touch of insomnia.

If not magical lights then certainly magical experiences

  to  be able to capture sunset skies long after

we could in Victoria…Down Under.

During our new Zealand road trip

 

MGW had my camera nearby to capture scenes

that would have been impossible for me to photograph.

 


With my camera hard up against a window

I manage to capture some of this sunset

on Friday October 5, at the

Wedding Rehearsal Dinner which was held at

Devon on the Wharf in Auckland. 

My images are a bit different to the sample shots in the challenge post. 

They are, however, all taken through glass.
