Skywatch Friday: Sunset on Hastings

On the final night of our holiday in Port Macquarie, I wanted to photograph sunset further up the Hastings River with some boats in the shot . We spent the afternoon across the other side of the river taking photos on the break wall.  About 45 minutes before sunset, we drove to a spot I thought would be good for sunset but, the angle of the sun wasn't quite right and wouldn't include the boats.

We drove to the car ferry crossing so we could shoot sunset from the opposite side of the river, hoping that a ferry would cross in time. While we were waiting for the ferry to cross the river, I took out my tripod & camera and snapped a couple of shots...

Then we drove onto the ferry to cross back over the river.


And we discovered this little gem... an extremely old and rickety jetty.


There are 1440 minutes in every day... 1440 opportunities to capture a moment of beauty.
What moment of beauty did you capture this week?
