The last couple of years i got hooked on shooting during (early) nighttime hours. The long exposures make you really work your images, composition and exposure has to be exactly right.Right after sunset you have the nice blue and orange colors in the sky.

The place is located 125 kilometres west of Brisbane, the capital of the state of Queensland. The place is about 700 metres above sea level and is located at the crest of the Great... continue reading
