Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Sunset to Sunrise

After Dark and Before the Day Begins

This week’s photos are all from the archives. I don’t get out at night or in the early morning much. Sunset at Sisters Beach was easy. It was mid-winter so it was about 4:40pm. I still haven’t figured out a good way to photograph the moon and stars but I’m working on it.

The following photos were taken over several years and I’ve put them up more or less in the order that they were taken.

Sunset at Uluru taken on holiday around the early -mid 1980s. I have cleaned the picture up a bit as there were a few dust spots but the colours are what I saw.

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.


    • I have the same trouble from here, Too many trees to take them from the balcony and a distracting street lamp. There were no lights near my old house which although it meant I could barely see after dark there was no light pollution at all.
