Photographer's Note

The sky ignites over Moreton Bay, SE Queensland on a warm winter’s afternoon. The vista is taken from above the very tall sand dunes behind Tangalooma, on the Moreton Island sand mass. Here, Mt. Tempest is the tallest coastal dune in the world at 285m. The land, about 35km away is the northern side of the Queensland State capitol Brisbane and the Redcliffe Peninsular. On a usual clear day, the skyscrapers of the CBD are easily visible on the mainland. This intensity of sunset built up over about 20 minutes before peaking here and fading within minutes. This was the best in a series of about 15 shots taken. Not bad, considering this was taken with my earliest camera, a HP 2MP dinosaur. The horizon is straight; it is the ranges on the mainland that give the undulating effect.
