Skywatch Friday: Sunset at O'Reilly's

A couple of months ago, we took at day trip to O'Reilly's Rainforest in the McPherson Range (part of the Scenic Rim).

I was really looking forward to photographing sunset. What appeared before me was rather interesting... I nearly went home after seeing that it was going to be rather misty over the mountains in the distance.





Photo bombed by a Crimson Rosella...

All of a sudden, the mist rolled in like smoke from a fire. At this stage I packed up my camera...

As I walked away, I took another glance over my shoulder. It looked at little more promising...

I thought it might clear even more...

Then the mist rolled in again...

And even more so...


It really was quite beautiful and nothing I'd ever experienced before.

Great pictures Liz! Don't you love it when a landscape teases you with a picture and you never quite know what your going to get!

Well, your patience really paid off. I've had the same experience... packed up the gear only to unpack later as the sky took on new color. These are beautiful!
