There is a magic in a sunrise and a sunset. The sky changes in color and creates an experience that absorbs the watcher, Behind this field of green the sun sets almost apologetically for staining the sky. When insect wings are glistening in the beamOf the low sun, and mountain-tops are bright,Oh, let me, byContinue reading “Sunrise 11 March”

Sunset Today at Cooktown
Finally the rain stopped and I was able to walk up Jensens Crossing road in Cooktown to see a sunset over Mount Cook.
Sunrise at Laura
There are beautiful sunrises and sunsets here and viewing is from the back of the home area where there is the staff living quarters and a holding paddock and dam. The home property is shaded with many different trees. Another beautiful day has begun.
Sunset over the Sea

I noticed small boats fishing and realised they were prawning. Often prawns can be caught sitting on the bottom around weedyContinue reading “Prawn Fishing at Sunset”
Sunrise Over the Sea
The last February Sunrise on the Southern Moreton Bay Islands was spectacular. I took the 5.20 am Ferry from Russell island to Redland Bay Marina, taking photos as the colors deepened and changed with vivid intensity. When the sun is low on the horizon during sunrises and sunsets, the sunlight travels through more of the atmosphere. ShorterContinue reading “Sunrise Over the Sea”
