OMG - I was just wondering if anyone managed to get that on their camera - I've just driven back up the Crowchild and between about 6.25pm and 6.35 pm it was just stunning. I was pretty dumbstruck actually (and that doesn't happen often).

If anyone had painted a picture of those pinks, purples and oranges, you would think they were tripping. Unreal.

Thanks for those piccies. Bootiful

Great photos Flossie. Unfortunately our 'hill' gets in the way of the sunsets and all we saw was a little dash of pink We do get the beautiful sunrises though, but nothing as spectacular as your photos.

Wow that is stunning. Not quite as spectacular but sunrises on the east coast are also great.
