I love a full moon. Sometimes not just for its glowing shape set low in the sky, but for the light that it casts. In this case, in Brisbane the full moon rose through a murky haze of smoke caused by the tragic Queensland bushfires at the time. It’s usually silver light, now a golden amber, bathing the mangrove flats of Nudgee Beach with other worldly colour.
Blood red sky. Another striking thing I noticed in Queensland on this visit was the skies at sunset. Amber red. A product of the smoke haze from the bush fires. Eerie yet beautiful. Here’s another scene from Nudgee Beach, the blood red sky caught as reflections in sand flats, creating interesting patterns leading the eye out to silhouetted mangroves in the background.
