Orange Sunset by Michael John

This amazing sunset was captured across the Clarence River at Yamba in northern NSW, Australia.

The whole sky filled with an orange glow, which was then reflected in the river below.

A Casuarina tree is silhouetted in the foreground.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.

    Fantastic shot Michael. When I first saw it I thought it was taken during the big dust storm we had a few months ago.

  • Thanks Ralph. No, it is the real deal!
