A dust storm at night

The glow of Brisbane tends to really be accentuated by the dust storm hanging around at the moment.

Shot at the end of a full day flickr meet.

    looks so much like it would be a shot from pre dawn rather than 11 at night!

    Nice shot David!! Love the light on the hills & that colour is very cool.
    Excellent long exposure mate!! Should dust my gear off & get out hey..
  • David de Groot said:
    Yeah usually I curse about the glow, but it worked well in this one :)
    Thanks :)
    Thanks David - shame you couldn't have come out for this section too, we even toodled down the road to my place for coffee afterwards.
    Indeed! Full moon and a dusty horizon can really change the look of the scene.
    Yeah, that road was unusually busy for 11pm on a Sat night. Worked well though.
    Now when have you even known me to be helpful in that manner ? ;-)
    Thanks Adam - speaking of dust, I should wipe down some of my gear now ;-)

    That looks great. Excellent scene and colors. The dust storm made this sky look insane going from blue to the dust color. Well done!

    gotta work with the weather we're given i suppose..glad we haven't been hit down here yet (fingers crossed).

    golmuso - Turned out in our favour that night, but I really could have done without the duststorms completely, given everything got well and truly coated in it.
