Last night at Ricketts Point the “after sunset” kept getting more colourful as the rays played with light on the underside of cloud layers that sat high in the sky. Even the birds were watching. There were probably over one hundred human watchers scattered around the bays either side of the point. Todays weather forecast was for high 30’s oC and a North wind.

It was certainly predicted by the intensity of last nights sunset.

The sunsets across Port Phillip bay from Ricketts Point at this time of the year are often golden like this one.  We captured these images 4 nights ago. There were many photographers scattered across the point as it was low tide. These two in the images had a camera mounted on a mini tripod right down on the water level. The seagulls as usual glided around as they settled in for the night.
