Hi all...

Haven't had much time on line as my wife and I are moving house at moment... setting up our first "purchased" home. But between packing boxes, moving furniture and unpacking (plus all the paperwork) it's good to quickly post something here on Steve's forums.

These 2 sunsets were taken almost 3.5 years ago... Dec 2004 and Jan 2005 with my trusty Fuji F601 point and shoot camera, which has taken I guess at least over 30,000 photos in about 20 countries.

Photo 1.

Christmas day 2004. Returning from a lovely day with relatives... this was the evening sky...

Unfortunately I have not been out taking photos in the last 2 weeks, (due to moving home, lots of work, etc). And it's even autumn here, so some of the introduced (nothern hemispheran trees) trees ARE showing some warm autumn (fall) colours... but hey, I just haven't been out with my camera lately.

Most Australian trees don't shed their leaves like most deciduous trees do. Some Aussie trees / bushes, do change appearance throughout the year (e.g. flowering, gum nuts, less /more foilage, etc).

Anyway, here is a silhouette of another sunset with the Fuji F601.

Photo 2. Taken near Coles Bay, east coast of Tasmania - when visiting and staying with friends there. Taken from a boat looking west over an inland bay area (we didn't really catch much fish.. .but the sunset and reflection were nice!!)

Thanks for viewing. I'm still pleased with so many of the photos I took with my Fuji, and I believe good composition and capturing good lighting is more important than having the "best" / fancy camera, though yes, I can do lots more with my current Canon DSLR in terms of advanced photography.

Beautiful shots, Paul. That first shot looks like the sky is boiling.

Hi Mugmar

Thanks for complimenting these cool / warm shots!

And I appreciate your congratulations on our new home.... it's certainly exciting, though I'll be honest - I was much more elated about getting married in 2006 than I am about buying a home this year... because I believe people are more important than buildings...

Regards

Paul
