    Hi. Yeah, we could get some great photos. Hopefully the cloud cover will move off and we get to see the sun too

    I'd say so, Keep a check on the news, A heap of flights cancelled to NZ and Tassie today because of it Not that that worries me personally, But it would be a great inconvienience to some Good for Photographers tho

    A snippet from the news

    "While the main ash cloud is expected to pass to the south of the Australian mainland it has reached airspace in southern Tasmania and the south island of New Zealand," the authority said in a statement.

    "The northern edge of the cloud is expected to reach Victoria, southern NSW and the Australian Capital Territory (Canberra), but it is also diffusing.

    My sister emailed that last night the sunset from her house (high up at Lenah Valley) was violet, and I saw some spectacular shots on another forum of said phenomena. Let's see 'em, Taswegians!

    Thanks for the tip William. I didn't spot this thread until today though.

    Driving home just after 5.05 there were spectacular colours in the sky. West in the sky was a brilliant red (straight over Mt Dromedary) and behind us was violet colours. I did grab my camera and used the settings as they were - Manual, 1/400s and f/4.5 or so. If we stopped the car I would probably have missed it. My shot has a fair bit of noise in the dark areas. I'll try again sometime but hopefully for a planned shoot.

    I'm on the road but tonight looks like it might provide some good light for those with their cameras. I left mine at home today!

    My rules are that sometimes it is good to not have the camera and just enjoy the experience. I love taking photos, but also love not taking them and just sitting back and taking in the sunset etc, without thinking f18 at 10 seconds...hehe
