Perth City by larsen Perth City by larsen
This photograph was shot a couple of weeks back. This morning firemen finally got a huge fire threatening eastern suburbs under control - 16,ooo hectars of land was already lost. The smoke from that fire is what created the thick, orange blanket of fog you see laying over the city. Though I didn't care much for the smell, the smoke gave the light an extra warm tone this morning.

Daily Deviation

Given 2005-02-20
Perth City by ~larsen is a snapshot of the ideal perspective in life. Through his lens the artist has shown us to always look on the bright side. Even the threat on 16,000 hectare fires cannot take away the beauty to found each day. ( Suggested by scoota269 and Featured by mirrorkills )

I’ve featured this piece in my news article [link] . I hope you don’t mind it and enjoy the article, too.

I’m sorry if, by posting this comment on more of your photos, I’m spamming your inbox – I am aware that some deviants were featured numerous times, but want to be clear on what exactly I posted there. :)

This is an amazing shot; the colors are perfect with the lighting of the golden hours, the composition is flawless and well complemented by the wonderful black framing. :clap: I don't know how I missed this one before!

Got a little bored with it being faved all the time. It's not -that- good :)
HornyLilDeviant Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2009
Well, I know what you mean, but to us it's good because the colours are great and also the water-exotic vegetation-water-skyscrapers composition is very compelling and refreshing.

And lol why do you even mind if we keep faving it?
