This photo was taken at about 6.40pm on Monday, just after the sun had set; the sky portrayed these amazing colours. The same thing happened the previous night, however I didn’t manage to get a photo of it, so when I noticed the colours coming out this evening, I went outside, camera in hand, sitting, waiting. I didn’t want to miss this awesome occurrence a second time, it was just mesmerizing!
I’ve recently seen photos of the same night, but from the other side of town, and the sky was a lot more yellowy/orange. Which is very crazy when you look at the magenta-style colours in my photo.
Nevertheless, we are lucky cyclone Atu didn’t cause too much damage around town, it just brought us some pretty pictures, and a long weekend that was spent indoors!!
