OCTOBER Photo Challenge - Entries (Please Post them here)

The topic this month is: ... "Golden Hour Activity"

Some ideas: Silhouettes of people enjoying a view, jogging, surfing, aircraft, animals, birds etc.
If there's a car parked, ship/boat docked etc that will eventually *move*, that's fine.
Don't just limit yourself to the setting sun in the west, turn around to the east for the explosion of colour of pink and blue with The Belt of Venus visible in a short window of time before sunset.
There's many options here, so I hope to see lots of entrants and looking forward to the variety of pics!
Thanks Suzy for defining your Topic so nicely.

Now for the small print: ...
This thread is only for posting your entry along with any comments you'd like to make about your own photo.
If you would like to comment on other people's entries, or have any "other" shots of your own, then please use the Comments and Rejects Thread -> HERE.

Remember the Rules:
* one entry (just one image) per person and
* the image must be your own work.
* all other normal forum rules, and image size limits, apply.

The image doesn't necessarily have to be taken this month, but in the spirit of the challenge, we do encourage it, so you get out and get into it and enjoy the challenge.
In this regard, YES, the image may be one that you have submitted to a previous photo challenge, unless of course it has already been voted a winner.

The winner of the public vote, which will be run at the end of the month, will get to choose next month's topic and have their photo added to our "Photo Challenge Hall of Fame" thread.

Good Luck!

Such a peaceful time of day if you can spend it in beautiful natural surroundings.

Liquid Gold

Taken earlier this week while waiting on the verandah for a dramatic red sunset that never showed up. The bright sun that did make an appearance was deliberately hidden behind my shoes, and at least it did provide a nice golden glow.

Is an "action" shot or a relaxed "inaction" shot though? There was certainly some vigorous swallowing action going on before, during and after... And of course there is some properly energetic action going on there too... if you look carefully up near the top there's bird flying home to roost.

An old image from Bellara on Bribie Island. Chasing some bait fish before settling in for some serious fishing, I suppose.
