Photographer's Note

I count myself very lucky to witness this scene. I was attracted by the blue, red, orange and black colors, like a painted colorbook by school children.

This was 1/40s shutter speed and I had to hold steady at best I could.

Initially, I thought I would focus on the sun, sky, river and included just the bow of the ship, carefully avoiding the mast. After a while, I thought it would make a difference to have the ship.

So 15 minutes later, I compromised with a part of the sun, sky, water, clouds, and the ship, mast and its craned boom which is straight up here.

In this view, you get to see the craned boom working frantically in spotlights and in such sunset light, at overtime most probably due to Chinese New Year just around the corner and a lot of cargo goods to be transferred in and out.

Looking at it now, I like the red sky immediately behind the craned boom, as if imagining firing up missiles kind of movie stuff?

As the rays dimmed when the sun dipped further down the horizon, it was found that the sky lit up in bright red, like a painted sky from a school children's coloring workbook.

Anyhow, coming back to sunset. Everyday, the sunset is never the same as the day before. Each is special and unique. This is Nature's way to let us admire and appreciate its beauty. Such is Nature's best offer to us, everyday without fail.

Thank you for looking.
