Amanda Grace posted this sublime winter sunrise shot on Instagram on Monday.

“I almost cried because I didn’t have my DSLR! So this photo was actually taken from my iPhone, with very little editing. I reduced the noise to compensate, and brightened it slightly, but the sky was actually these colours.”

Thanks Amanda for allowing us to share your shot.

We love seeing images of your amazing adventures in nature, so keep exploring and keep sharing!

    PARTS of South Australia transformed into a winter wonderland on Saturday as a cold front made its way across the state. Snow fell in higher parts of the Mid North, around Jamestown, Hallett and Peterborough, and in Mount Lofty.

    What a beautiful view to see on my laptop first thing this morning! Thanks for sharing,
    Amanda 🙂


    Stunning. With all the fresh snow on the mountains, pretty much everywhere is a picture paradise – but then when isn’t it!
