Twilight Time At The Port......




~ Looking west towards the Port River Bridge from McLaren Wharf ~

It was an evening just like any other evening - nothing spectacular
until the sun started dipping below the horizon - everything changed
and the world took on another hue
one of blues and pinks and golds




Viewed through the rigging of the sail training ship
"The One And All"


This is my contribution to
"Skywatch Friday"

Everything that was said above and so much more Dianne. I saw on the blogsphere someone, not sure who it was, maybe M la Vache, called this the 'blue hour', it's such a brilliant time to catch these magical images.
