"Sacrifice" (Explored #23)

I spent the entire day riding my motorbike with a group of friends and arrived home around 4:30pm. I was incredibly sore and very tired, but I needed my fix - I grabbed my camera gear, frantically cleaned my lens and GND then raced down to a favourite spot (Cronulla) to capture what was left of the remaining light. I am in Sydney, Australia which means the sun sets in the west (over the mountains), however occasionally you get clouds on the horizon to the east which reflect the colours of the sunset. Today was no exception, with mother nature displaying some of the most amazing cumulus clouds i've seen in my short career as a landscape photographer.


Whilst on this shoot, my car broke down, I got an $84 parking ticket for parking "nose in", and my body is screaming at me to let it rest. All sacrifices i'm happy to make for photography.
