A twilight silouette taken from high in the rainforest hinterland
Took this shot one evening high in the Hinterland West of Gold Coast. The clear skies displayed a very smooth even colourful transition. The tree line created a nice silhouette to compliment the fantastic colours. This was taken well after sunset, but before the daytime glow completely fades away to black.
Tripod and F/8, 15 seconds ISO640. I had to step back to take this photo and use a longer focal length. If too wide a lens is used the transitions from colour to black is much larger than the tree. By shooting at 70mm I was able to compress the vertical section of colour transition and keep it close to the vertical span of the tree.
