Aurora Solaris – The sunset version of northern lights

At the end of 2012 I ventured off on a walkabout through the Australian bush, chasing the solar eclipse, black opals and the Wollemi pine. The landscapes of Australia are truly out of this world – and so were the sunsets.

This is the incredible sunset at Wollemi National Park, and it’s probably one of the most epic I’ve ever seen. It was like an Aurora Solaris – the sunset version of northern lights.

No artificial colours were added to this picture. It’s 100% real.

Wollemi National Park is the home of the prehistoric Wollemi Pine, that has survived in its hidden corners and secluded spots since the time of dinosaurs.
