One evening as we left the office, I was so taken by the sunset and dusk over Fairfax Harbour, I tried taking my shots through the staff bus windows but none of them did justice to the moment. So when we were on the Freeway halfway on our ascent I asked everyone if we could stop so I could take some shots of the unfolding dusk over the Harbour. My colleagues readily agreed, so we stopped by the roadside and these were the photos I took of Fairfax Harbour.
I was sitting downstairs at home this evening watching Japan play Denmark when I happened to look out of the window. I saw this awesome sight! Well, I didn’t have to think twice. I ran out of the living room, took my faithful Nikon D90 and ran upstairs. This was one of my first shots of the moon at dusk. We have daylight saving so it seems like twilight stretches forever. It was still light – albeit faint – at 10.00pm.
This captivating sight, over the rooftops looking towards Wembley was just so beautiful. I feel always with vistas like this, that there are so many man-made things which attract our attention. In doing so, we sometimes take for granted the coolest natural processes like the rising of the sun, the setting of the sun, moonlight etc.
It is here in Middlesex amongst some of the prettiest parks and tree-lined avenues, that my attention is acutely drawn to what I’d call – nature’s drawcards.
Nature’s drawcards are the beautiful and sometimes the not-so-beautiful things in nature that draw the attention of for instance, amateur and professional photographers and those that are avid nature watchers. They also draw the attention and interest of various people around the world for various reasons.
I just feel blessed to witness God’s handiwork on a day like this.
After I took these photos I went back to the living room just in time to see the final score of the Japan vs Denmark game. Well done Japan!
