As the sun was sinking slowly in the west,

this combine harvester

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

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

A June sunset is around 1700 in

Victoria (Down Under) in June.
