Mid January 2019
Hope you enjoyed.
A sunset golden hour a two years ago…
….at harvest time.
As the sun was sinking slowly in the west,
this combine harvester
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.
and I may have been a bit carried away with my shooting…
but all these photos were taken between…
2200 hours and 0300 hours.
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.
