…this was a sunset when the fires were approaching our house a few summers ago… i had my first little 2mp Coolpix in my back pocket while watching and waiting for the fires to hit… it was also time of the solar eclipse which happened minutes later… …so all that smoke and cloud mixed together gave a rather dramatic sunset with rooftops and gum trees silhouetted…(there’s a little TV antenna to the left and rooftop in the centre of the main pic)
…thankfully houses in my street were saved…however others a few streets away were not so lucky.. as is usually always the case during summer in Oz… :-(
…mother nature at her terrifying best!
