Farewell to November's last light

Photograph copyright: DAVID McMAHON (Image ID: 132-8790)


It was the last day of spring, and the post-sunset sky show was brief but memorable. A range of colours rolled across the landscape as the last light of November began to fade away in spectacular fashion.

It's been a wet spring and we're being told the showers will continue pretty much through December. But for a country that's been in drought for eight years, that is the best news ever. Bring on those showers!

Orange, red and pink skies are by far my favorite. You captured a beauty there! Happy December!

What a beautiful photo. It looks like rolling fire across the sky.

I am so glad you are getting rain. I know full well it is a wonderful welcomed relief.

Have a blessed day today.

Dave, the colors are exquisite!

Looking through your resent posts, I am taking notes. We just invested in a new camera with all the attachments (I'm sure there is a professional word for it.) Anywho, I am noticing the "rule of thirds" in your pictures. I never had a clue what a difference that really makes and how it sets great pictures apart from the average ones.
