Watching The Clouds Catch Fire by 

After watching the clouds roll by all morning, I stood and watched them catch fire at Portsea Pier 5 minutes before sunrise.
Well worth the early rise to see colours like this in the sky. I was running up and down the beach trying to get the best perspective; the colours didn’t last long.

    wasn’t sure whether to add this, but I mentioned the red clouds in the previous shot, so thought I should.
