'Bula' from Fiji...

This is 12 minutes after sunset on Mana Island, Fiji, in the Pacific Ocean. I was sorry I had left the other side of the hill where the sun had set, but it meant walking back around the rocks in the darkening night and it was a bit dangerous too. And when I looked back and saw this sky on fire that I was so sorry that I hadnít stayed over there. Quite stunning isnít it?

I was on holiday on Mana Island, a 300 acre island nestled among the western string of islands that make up the Mamanuca group just west of Nadi International Airport, Fiji. Beautiful white sandy beaches, amazing live coral reefs and crystal clear waters, surround Mana Island and it does have spectacular sunsets.

Hi Janice

A superb tropical sunset, with excellent color graphism & silhouettes. Good work!

Hi Janice,
This is a really pretty shot! The reddish tones are beautiful and I especially like how the palm tree and hill naturally frame the photo. Well done!

Hi Janice,
You know how much I love these, so its two thumbs up. I have left to early sometimes myself. Then I look back and kick myself for leaving to soon. Great Shot! Gotta getback to the beach!

Very well shot Jancie - it really looks like sky on fire with the unusual texture of clouds.

Hi Janice. Long time no "see." I haven't been doing much on the Trek sites for quite a while but have thought about you different times. Phil mentioned you the other day. He has been doing quite a few postings on TE & TL of late. Anyway, I love your posting here. It is beautiful. Hopefully, I'll be on more soon after my workload slows down a bit. God's best to you always Janice! Tim :o)

you were lucky to be there in the right moment... but you did also a very good picture as pov and cutting, so compliments.... ;-)))

Hi Janice,
Great photo. A beautiful "painted sunset" as we used to call these dramatic sunsets in Sri Lanka.

Hi Janice

Fantastic sky, very beautiful. Extra fine colors, great atmosphere. Thanks for sharing this.
