Sunset of Fire and Beauty in December

IMG_0055

There are storms predicted for the days ahead, and tonight’s sunset was very stormy

I started walking and running down the road taking photos as I climbed the slope for the best view possible. All around me the sunset was turning the entire sky deep pink and purple and the oranges glowed brighter and brighter

Sunset Fraser Island August 4

The sky had a streak across like a feather and the clouds were blown across in trails like jet trails. As the sunset deepened in intensity the tendrils of wispy cloud intensified in color. It was intense, fiery and amazingly beautiful.

For some reason this sunset made me feel incredibly lonely and I kept trying to leave, but the sunset kept forcing me back to take another photo and admire the increasing intensity of the skies. I walked back to the enclosure to leave, but again I turned and took another photo.

The trails followed me back to my room where I took the last two photos from the verandah. The sunset just would not leave the sky. The trails swept the entire sky with brightening flames of color and it was so mesmerizing and so beautiful.

I waited for the sun to set before I left the sea, but still the colors pursued me as I walked back to Kingfisher Resort.

Sunset on the Brisbane River

Sunset Cruise with the City Hopper..a free ferry that travels the Brisbane River from North Quay to Sydney Street and back again. The best part is that it is free to use, and you can sit on the top deck as long as you wish and tour the River.

We have just left Eagle Pier and the sunset has started. I am enjoying the top deck of the City Hopper now on the Sunset Cruise.

The sunset is behind the city of Brisbane. We are at Southbank and you can see the Goodwill Bridge. The Red Hopper stops at the Maritime Museum, Thornton Street and then goes to north Quay under Victoria Bridge.

We are now at Eagle Pier where the Story Bridge has lit up, and then the lights on the buildings start to show and it is evening in Brisbane
