    Nice moment and excellent layered effect in the portrait mode Mieke.

  • Thanks, Bruce! I once saw a photo like this and it’s been stuck in my head ever since. Very happy to have seen it for myself… and to have captured it is even better!

    Gorgeous Mieke. What a spectacular capture

  • Thanks, Karen! There have been bushfires around so the smoke has been making the sunsets especially red…
