'Bula' from Fiji...

This isnt as sharp as I would have liked it, but at this stage we were carrying the tripod, and I just happened to look back and see this wonderful display.

I have shown you a few photos of the wonderful sunset in Fiji last month. This is 20 minutes after sunset on Mana Island on 15 August 2005. I was quite amazed to see what looked like the sun still in the sky, but no, it was exactly 20 minutes after the sun had set.

I was sorry we had left the other side of the hill where the sun had set, but it meant walking back around the rocks in the darkening night and it was a bit dangerous too. And when I looked back and saw this sky on fire I was so sorry that I hadnt stayed over there. Quite stunning isnt it?

Today I picked up my camera from the camera hospital and tomorrow I will take it back. Nothing else to say from me!! ...
Signing out sadly
Janice :(

What a captive moment indeed Janice! The "burning" sky is wel captured and I do like the inclusion of the coast on the left of the image. Composition is very nice as well. Could have been a splendid image if you would have mounted the camera to your tripod.
Good health to your camera btw!

Hi Janice,
Fantastic shot!
The colour is so nice, and very good composition.

Hello Janice!

Janice, considering you used 1/13, sharpness is okay.

I like colors and pov, as well as composition.

I do hope you have your camera with you soon.
