Mother Nature was indeed kind to me the evening I managed to get this image.

I spent several days at the hot rock drilling site near Paralana, after getting permission from one of the venture partners, Beach Petroleum, to take late afternoon, dusk and night shots.

The first night I worked out that this was probably the best angle but four very strong lights which lit up the entire working platform of the rig just ruined all the shots I took.

On the last evening the crew kindly agreed to cut the main lights for ten minutes but in fact had them off for the entire time I was shooting. What a bonus and Thank You.

The sunset then went to work and turned on a display that was hard to believe. What a symbol of harnessing natural clean energy.
