SUNRISE, SUNSET (and clouds that come in between)

It’s been a couple of weeks since Melbourne has had a decent sunset worth photographing, but last night made up for it.  Images made with a Canon DSLR on Aperture Priority...

Melbourne was blessed with a gorgeous sunset last night and I only wish I was down the beach or somewhere with a clear view of the sky.  But the reality is...

Too much heavy rain and cloud cover towards Sunset – but still worth a view.

I couldn’t decide on the best shot to show off the sky colour last week, so you get a selection.

Autumn in Melbourne, Australia, is usually the time when we get magnificent (or at least better-than-usual) sunsets. Not a lot so far, but even a small one is a welcome sight,...

I have to apologise for the lousy compositions in this post, but since this blog is about the sky, not the landscape, I’m sure you will excuse me.  I nearly missed...

Not a great sunset, so we’ll call this one ‘Clouds that come in Between’ The last image does not really portray the scene too well.  The reality was more like tiny...

If there’s no sign of the setting sun directly in front of me where I sit at my desk (in front of my lounge window), how do I know it’s coming?...

At 8.00pm (I nearly missed it as I was typing and only by chance looked up through the window) ……..and at 6.59pm (an hour earlier)  

Last scene made with a different camera – Sony a6000 ‘mirrorless’.

  I nearly missed the sunset last night. It was small and fleeting. This was all that was left (of it) from my apartment balcony looking up the hill to the...

These images were made over one hour from 8.00pm to 8.58pm with 2 different cameras looking directly south (The Abbotsford Convent skyline) AND south-west (the office next door to my apartment...

There was no sunset this particular summer evening, but the contrast between the clear sky above my suburb and the storm clouds to the South were quite unusual and very striking.

NOTE: to gain a full appreciation of how much the skies changed over the 20 months I lived in a 3rd floor apartment, may I suggest you click on the HOME...

The last of the sunset lights the top of The Good Shepherd Chapel, Abottsford Convent (to the south) from my (then) 3rd floor apartment balcony. Leaning over the balcony fence, looking...

This image was made about 40 minutes after the images in the previous post.

Would you believe………………..12 minutes after the previous post image.

The image above was made at the end of an hour or so photographing the beach at St Kilda. I had left the beach and was walking back to the tram...

For those interested, we now come to the time in my Sunset, (and occasionally Sunrise), and Cloud Library Folder where I was living in a third floor apartment for 20 months...

There’s a story behind the series of images in this post. I had seen a spectacular sunset the night before walking home from the Royal Botanic Gardens.  I decided to go...

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...

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

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...
