Sunset 17/12/19

A bright sun descends
From an orange sky,
A portent
Of things to come

Watching the sun go down from the lookout at Green Point Reserve. After the weeks of smoke in the air from the bushfires, it was nice seeing the sun and a clear sky again, even if it’s probably not going to last for long unfortunately.

Dusk 1/9/19

Gold light
Spills across the lake
As the sun sets
On the first day of Spring

Lovely dusk light over the Belmont Baths this afternoon. I almost didn’t go down for the sunset but I’m glad I did. It was a beautiful end to the day and a great way to start Spring.

Stockton Sunset

The sun
Sets fire to the sky
Like a dragon
Scorching the horizon

The setting sun as seen from Stockton. Most of the sunset wasn’t that special but the sky turned a lovely orange for a few moments just before it started to disappear. I was lucky enough to get this shot just as it did.

Harlequin Bug

I found a little beetle; so that Beetle was his name,
And I called him Alexander and he answered just the same.

~ Forgiven by A A Milne

A harlequin bug (Tectocoris diophthalmus) on the outside of our house. I grabbed my camera and macro lens when I saw it and took a few quick shots, this one came out well. Nice and sharp.

It’s very pretty, gorgeous colours. Looking at it reminded me of the poem Forgiven by AA Milne which I used to love as a child.

Belmont Jetty at Dusk

A purple and yellow sky
Dotted with clouds
Marks the end
Of a long day

This is from a couple of weeks ago, by the new Belmont Baths. I’m really enjoying exploring the baths and jetty, there are a lot of fantastic opportunities for photos, particularly now there are less people around.

Seagull Sunset

Golden reflections
Shimmer across the water
As day fades to night

I took this photo by the lake in Belmont a couple of weeks ago. It was a beautiful sunset and this seagull was kind enough to pose for me as well which really added to the photo.
