World on Fire - Sunrise over Kawau Bay 6/5/19

I opened the curtains on May 6 and couldn't believe this astonishing sight. Like the world was on fire! This sent me fumbling for my camera; set up the tripod, get the right lens, what about ISO, quickly before the colors die down! I was fortunate in one way that the colors stayed strong for 10 minutes but then, after all the clicking, which shot to develop? Such were the colors that even the RAW files needed very little enhancement.

Canon EOS 6D 1/100 second F/8.0 ISO 800 35 mm

Time to shoot a few snaps but still - Rather short of time at present with study and work but having a look at everyone's splendid images when I can.
