On my travels around Australia, I became obsessed with some of the majestic Australian sunsets and sunrises that I witnessed. There were a kaleidoscope of colours, including fiery red, crimson, cerise, magenta, lilac, burnt orange, tangerine, golden yellow, saffron, vermillion and shocking pink. Some were captured over the ocean, lakes or lagoons and some were captured over the land peeping over mountain ranges, through grassy plains or scrubby bushland.
