These images don’t fall in the category of Sunrise, Sunset (and the Clouds that come in between).

I just love the late afternoon sun hitting the sea and forming silhouettes in the late afternoon on this particular day.

This image is the same scene as in the 2nd last post but just zoomed in with the telephoto lens I was using.

26th July, 2015 – Storm – Winter

With 2 cyclones hitting north and north-eastern Australia causing billions of dollars in damage and flash flooding this week, I thought it might be timely to share a small storm which hit Melbourne back in 2015.  At the time I was living in a 3rd floor apartment that had an uninterrupted view across the rooftops  and surrounding skies.

These images were made exactly 5 minutes apart over one hour.

It was only a small burst of heavy rain, but just shows how the skies can change very quickly.

I made these images with my DSLR on a tripod from the warmth of my lounge room.


28th May, 2013 – Sunset – Autumn

6th July, 2012 – Dusk – Winter

This image was made 5 minutes after the photo in the previous post (and that previous post image was made 5 minutes after the previous post to that).  So, 3 images 5 minutes apart and at different focal lengths can have very different colours.  The focus is soft in this shot, but the sky was a lovely colour all the same and deserves sharing on this particular blog (devoted to clouds and sky colours).


15th July, 2011 – 6.13am – Winter

(note: my camera says 6.13am which must be wrong – no way would I be outdoors in the Royal Botanic Gardens at that time, when this image was shot.  It must be 6.13PM).
