Artist's Description

Taken at Bellambi Point NSW Australia Monday 9th August 2010 just as the day was ebbing away.

Today like all days probably the pelicans were hanging around the fishermen and their catch!! waiting for offerings. This guy however decided to go down into the surf.

The only adjustment is increased saturation and crop to square.

Did you know that in this picture you can see the Earth’s Shadow and The Belt of Venus!

The belt of Venus (named after the Roman goddess Venus) is a pink to brownish border separating the dark shadow band of the earth from the sky above it. It is best visible when the atmosphere is cloudless, yet very dusty, just after sunset. The twilight wedge is then rising over the eastern sky and the backscattered red sunlight at the border of the wedge can then be identified as the belt of Venus.
