Sunset Colours at Lake Ballard

This is the very first image I took when we got to Lake Ballard.

It was touch and go that we were going to make it and from an hour out we were wondering if indeed we would make the sunset and as it turned out we made it just as the sun kissed the horizon in time for the after glow of colours which are shown here.

Can you picture the scene…rolling up and 4 guys leaping out trying to get their gear and race to the best vantage point we could muster knowing full well the sun had actually gone down and that there was not time to scope too much at all!

I think what attracted me to this vantage point was simply the colours that were developing through the sunset and the glowing path heading up to the hill.
