A good thing about staying on a small island like Heron Island is as well as Sunrises You can walk around to the other side in the evening and watch the sunset.

The wreck in the BG is The 'HMCS Proctector'

HMCS / HMAS Protector was a light cruiser (gunboat) commissioned and purchased by the South Australian government in 1884, for the purpose of defending the local coastline against possible attacks in the aftermath of the ‘Russian scare', of 1870s.[1] She arrived in Adelaide in September 1884 and subsequently served in the Boxer Rebellion, World War I and World War II.

During July 1943, Protector was requisitioned for war service by the US Army. En-route to New Guinea and off Gladstone, she was damaged in a collision with a tug and abandoned. The hull was subsequently taken to Heron Island off the Queensland coast and later sunk for use as a breakwater. Her rusting remains are still visible to this day.

Another version in WS with some PP notes.

Beautiful sunset Tim with lovely golden colours and strong silhouette of the cruiser and birds.

Hi, Tim. great capture of a golden sunset. I like the silhouetting of the ferry and the bird. I cannot figure it out if it is a seagull, heron or a pelican. congratulations on a good post.

Great golden colours of the sunset and the contrasting silhouettes Tim. Well done!
Cheers, Pat.
I like this version.

Hi Tim
Those sunsets are really a good reason to feel lucky you can experience. A very peaceful and serene environment with great colors and palyful clouds that create a painting like impression. I like the shadows of the bird and the boat that add to it
Best wishes

Hi Tim great sunset shot. Beautiful colors silhouette of boat, flying birds and the bird in foreground works perfect. Good peaceful atmosphere. TFS - Regards - Adil.

Hi Tim,
Beautiful colors and such a delightful "liquid" sky! Marvellous silhouete of the bird.
Personally, I prefer this version because I find that the one in the WS is a bit too dark on the left side although the colors and texture are also magnificent.
TFS and have a nice weekend.

Hi Tim,
Great sunset, the birds add a lot to the composition, nice colors and composition.

Bonjour Tim,
Un très beau coucher de soleil aux couleurs riches et chaudes. L'épave ajoute encore plus d'intérêt.
Une belle composition et une luminosité splendide!
