Iridescence in the sky over the Illawarra

There was iridescence in the sky wet of the Illawarra last night. The sunlight passing through the icy clouds, creates a rainbow effect.

Yet another beautiful sunset. I went outside to unwind and an array of clouds in the western sky bore the promise of a glowing sunset.

Love looking at the sky. There is always something happening and I am yet to see a repeat. Back in May, Venus was quite bright in the western sky following sunset.

During this Autumn the skies over the Illawarra have been impressive, particularly at sunset. The moon has been a part of these evening performances as well.

A few weeks back I was capturing the clouds as sunset progressed and I made a few attempts to photograph the moon through the thin evening clouds. A few of the photographs are in the gallery below.

Sky on fire

The photographs in this gallery were taken on the 7th May 2012 looking west towards Nebo from Figtree. This Autumn is proving to rich with the most impressive of sunsets and these images demonstrate how the sky seemed to be on fire this particular evening.

Iridescent eve

The photographs in this gallery were taken on the 12th May 2012 looking west towards Nebo from Figtree. I had the feeling given the cirrus clouds and the sunset that there mighty be iridescent clouds and luckily my prediction proved true.

Darcy Moore and I went galavanting again on Saturday morning and took photographs at the Boneyard near Bombo and Kiama, New South Wales. An early start to the day.

Tropical storm in Singapore

Tropical storm in Singapore

I was fond of the storms that criss-crossed Singapore. These great storms would roll in with high winds and driving rain. I would watch them from the windows of our flat in Bukit Batok.
