Late afternoon from the bridge

We have had some spectacular skies over Brisbane lately. I was walking home from the city in the late afternoon and saw this.

I stood for a while to watch the changes.


  1. Looks like a Van Gogh painting. I loved it!

  2. By the way, the anonimous comment above was mine, Rosaly 🙂

    • Hi Rosaly, It is a good view isn’t it?

  3. Just beautiful!

  4. reminds me that i need to walk this bridge again – its such a lovely river and the winter night skies are amazing.

    • I love winter in Brisbane.

  5. The sky looks like beautiful shot silk (you know that shimmery kind of fabric that changes colours as you move it?)

    • It is a great colour. I was lucky to be there at just the right time.

  6. My favourite part of nature -just beautiful – thanks Deb….

    • I think Brisbane looks lovely at dusk.

  7. Absolutely stunning sunset with those cloud formations. Your photos really do look like paintings.

    • The colours are amazing. It was beautiful again today.

  8. beautiful city – gorgeous sunset.

    • I think Brisbane is a good looking city.

  9. Aahh, magnificent…

    • Aren’t sunsets fabulous?

      • Ohhh, they definitely are. I’m sure sunRISES are just as fabulous… except that I’m not an early-riser, so I tend to miss most of them. Oh dear…

      • I love sunrises at the beach. There is nothing like an early walk along the beach.

  10. Wow, I never see skies like that here

  11. Painterly skies…

  12. Beautiful colours there. I never know which country you’re in though! 😛

    • I am in Brisbane now, enjoying the wonderful winter weather.

  13. Wow…such a magnificent sunset…it really does look like a spectacular painting!

    • Brisbane puts on a good show sometimes.

  14. Wow, that is amazing. So gorgeous. Thanks for the reminder to stop and smell the roses. Although, stopping here in the Berra, you risk freezing over. I need a holiday. Brisbane, here I come. 🙂

    • Our winters are pretty good. I come all the way back from Italy for them.

  15. Great shots, you can’t beat just staying still and waiting for the light to be perfect!

  16. I live not far from this bridge and count myself lucky that this vista is an everyday experience for me! I love looking back and seeing the casino lit up aswell! Great shots!

    • Thank you. I love to walk across this bridge. I did it today on a cloudy dull day and the view is still good.

  17. […] on some spectacular winter weather. I come home for this.   Brisbane river  Click here and here to see our beautiful river.   Liz’s post on winter at Sunrise Beach offered another reason […]
