Yesterday was a clear Winters day, so I thought I’d get some more sunset photos from somewhere different.  I’d noticed a small new subdivision here in Pakenham, which is actually on the side of a hill with a new rest / picnic area at the top, so I’d been planning to have a look up there for a while.

That hill turned out to be a good local vantage point for photography.  When I fist got there, about 30 minutes before sunset, a family of Kangaroos seemed just as keen to keep an eye on me, as I was on getting a few shots of them!

I then changed to my fixed 40mm lens (on the Nikon D5100) and started concentrating on the setting sun.  Moving around a fair bit, trying different spots on the hill, my favourite pic from the shoot is actually this one, looking at the sun through the new undercover picnic area.
