Come on, how could a person not photograph this? Aside from the near perfect spread of light, what I really like about this is the way the centre of the cloudmass is bright and filled with defined structure.
To days later, December 27th, and this was sunset. Yup, that’s bushfire smoke making the sky look like that. Thick enough that you could look at the sun as a discreet, hard edged disc with no discomfort at all.
