Views whilst camping at Moogerah Dam.
Monday afternoon - an unpromising start to sunset.
This photographer had more hope for a spectacular sunset than we had. He had tramped quite a distance across a field, to set up on the lake edge.
Our sunset spirits lifted at this point.
And we were in awe for the next half hour.
Spot the 'cloud' star.
Tuesday 5.30 am, I was up ready to watch the near full moon set over the Great Dividing Range. I was greeted by clear skies and, after last evenings cloudy sky, I was thrilled to find no cloud as I stepped out of the van.
This thrill soon turned to disappointment. The moon had already sunk below the horizon. I checked my times again, but can only think that the range hid the moon sooner than suggested. Never mind, looking to the east, first light was brushing the skyline.
First light in the east.
First light in the west.
Mist, dancing on the lake, now added magic to the morning.
Colours began to change in the west.
The dawn of a new exciting day.
The day is underway. Mt Edwards awaits to be climbed.
Tuesday afternoon we were a little slow to visit the shoreline for sunset.

We had to hurry, not to miss these lovely muted colours.
Wednesday morning we were too busy watching the moon slowly sink in the west, to catch the sun actually rising.
[As in previous post]
The afternoon's sunset was a short, colourful spectacle.
Sunrise Thursday, fiery in the east and pink in the west.
Sadly it was now time to pack up and head for home. We left this beautiful setting behind, but the sunrises and sunsets at this time of year, wherever I am, continue to leave me spell bound.
I would love to read your comment.
