A hunt for red

Patti from the Lens-Artists sent us on a scavenger hunt to hunt for things that are Red

I had to go to town yesterday so I set out to find a few things from around town instead of my usual combing my place for bits of red among the nature that abounds here at times.

Here is what I found
A red post and a fortuitous red car driving pst20200127_blog challenge_red_post_car
A red motorbike at a service station with bits of red everywhere20200127_blog challenge_red_motorbike
A red ute livening up the street

I just happened to be near the Fire Station when the truck came out of the station20200127_blog challenge_red_fire truck
OK I did lie. I had to include the miniature red Hibiscus in my garden that are just flowering as there has been good rainfall over the past two weeks20200127_blog challenge_red_hibiscus_garden_durranbah

Sunset on Saturday

The word prompt from the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #67: Layered

I was sitting inside when I glance at the curtains and saw a red line. A small part of the sunset lit the curtain so vibrantly I had to grab my camera and head out to capture what I could before the sun set fully.

It was a case of the fires that are still burning in the western part of the north coast that have given some quite spectacular sunsets. This is also mixed with dust that the strong winds have whipped up taking the topsoil from many farms over the mountains in the western part of New South Wales.

The Sun turned into a fiery red ball as it disappeared on the horizon.

To the east, the clouds were building into huge layered cloud formations which looked storm like but failed to deliver any rain once again.191021_blog_challenge_layered_sunset4_clouds_red
