Rita sure was some sky but its damage bill is now in to the $900 million my slice of the day was way better than most people's. steve

Cheers, Bryan

Fantastic! That paltry little street light is such a brilliant reminder of our relative weakness in comparison to the marvels of nature. That blue is 'to die for'and the fringe of silhouettes makes the shot even more striking.

Very well done for an old walrus! ( ho ho, you deserved a dig, you know you did!)

Best wishes from over here,

This is fantastic! Those colours look almost unreal, they're so vivid! How lucky you are to have seen this moment and captured it so well !

Steve Paxton on April 29, 2010

Bryan & tu-quoque thanks i know a lot people in Perth are still cursing the day.

Sue walrus indeed and here i am trying to help but the three shot are quite fantastic. i love the way the sky changed colour almost within seconds and i was being told dinner was getting cold. steve
