This is it, the long weekend’s a thing of the past, we’re heading home.   The sun rises a little later each morning and I can’t resist the red sky, it must be a shepherds warning.

Fires have been raging all weekend, I can’t see the flames as they’re on the other side of a mountain range, but the north wester is blowing and the smoke clouds our skies.   It’s time for rain again.

As we hurtle along at 120km per hour I stretch to the very back of our Cruiser to grab my camera, the skies are simply too good to miss.

Another drive by shooting, this time without stopping, certain things have to be taken into consideration, e.g the lighting is really bad, it’s pre-dawn, the old Cruiser does a shake, rattle and roll, the only additional lighting I have are the headlights. All things considered I like the effect. A little adventure never does any harm and the colours are sublime.

These are today’s offerings.   I’ll not be doing sunsets or sunrises again for a while, unless there’s a really spectacular sky.
