Photography is timeless, it waits patiently to capture a moment that will forever be something, but only when curiosity and rigour get together, does that something happen.

Great comp Suellen!!
A lovely image Suellen.
Lovely image, and you have captured the band of Venus (the pink strip above the horizon after sunset) beautifully.
Gee, I didn’t know about the “band of Venus” thanks for the info, but what does it mean astronomically?
So far as I know it is just the term for the pink light you see just after sunset. It is caused by dust in the atmosphere so can be strong (as it is in your shot) or almost non existent in areas with extremely clear air.
I think last night there was smoke up the Derwent Valley as the colour of the sky was not natural sunset colours, the orange was really intense like you see during a bushfire, so if that was the case then there definietly would be a heavy dust loading in the sky…interesting thanks
Wonderful capture Suellen! comp and colours are superb! :))
thanks so much Kylie
