End of day, over the bay


...while there were clouds hovering, I thought maybe a good time to be down by the bay for some sunset photographs.  It might look serene and quiet, but near to where I stood was a large palm tree in someone's property backing onto the bay.  In the evening it fills up with very noisy birds settling down for the night.

And since no-one else is walking around at 8 p.m. it might look a little suspicious if I was to walk right up near their back fence to check them out. They actually sounded like starlings, but I don't see them around here.

One day I'll ask someone living nearby.  I might've suspected they'd be rainbow lorikeets in numbers but I'm not sure they sounded like those. 


It was lovely to take in that view and watch for the colour-play that was there for a short while

 and then waned some


 just panning around to where the sunset hadn't reached.  The Eraring Power Station is visible over to the right and the premises alongside are all lit up for the night ahead
 

and back again, with a glimpse of the moon


time to head home

For all of their paint box beauty, I think I like the more subtle images more - especially the ones with the Moon.
