    ok.... just this one, in particular.

    I took this photo with my phone at 8:30, Monday evening.

    South Eastern Australian Sky at my place from some months ago at around 6:30pm
    The first photo was kind of spooky as i've never seen a cloud so low and the sunset reflecting so strongly that it bathed everything in brilliant crimson light; almost like wind currents forced it down to 100 feet - was low enough to run outside in a state of panic, desperately fumbling around with my camera to try and get a photo.
    The second photo had the sunset somehow punching a hole in the cloud - great opportunity which only lasted minutes.

    As with most photography, the pics can't truly reflect the amazing experience.

    Excellent idea for a thread! This one's from a trip over your way Fabian, in the Grampians, VIC. We were on top of one of the biggest mountains there - floating in the clouds!

    Great photo Anton

    I must admit that the Grampians is quite a special location - wouldn't mind taking the motorized bicycle up through there when the Australian summer comes around.

    This photo was taken in Melbourne's outer eastern suburb of Ferntree Gully.

    I work for a living; a policeman i am not.

    I'm involved in security patrol work of which 8/10'th of the job is PR with clients.

    Caught these while taking pics of an oncoming haboob, fun dirt chewing night.The frayed edge of the clouds look like the edge of a UFO.

    That's an interesting cloud formation.
