Bad Moon On The Rise by CapturingTheNight Bad Moon On The Rise by CapturingTheNight

It was a crazy week of weather here for me in Australia last week. Six days straight of 40+ degrees Celsius (104+ Fahrenheit) temperatures and then dry lightning storms with a slight cool change sparked numerous fires. One such fire started about ten kilometers from where I live and has so far burnt over 10000 hectares. Stayed up most of the first night just keeping an eye on it in case the wind changed. Thankfully, for the time being at least, it has been mainly heading away from me. Hopefully everyone continues to stay safe.

Almost full moon rising next to the fire front reflected in a dam near my house.
Canon 5D MkII, 14mm, F/2.8, ISO 800,10 second exposure.

Spectacular capture, Greg!  The fires here in Vic are still burning all over the place, but luckily not near us.  The recent over-40C temps day after day were hard to handle, but a little cooler now, thank heavens! :deviation: :camera: :iconfrostymorningbliss: Cheers, Coco
