After heavy rain, storm and flood we had on our second, third and fourth day in Port St. Johns when we finally went to the sea on fifth day sky was interesting. Remains of storm clouds combined with low winter sun produced unusual hue - reddish colors on this photo are not photoshopped, they are real.

On that day we had several breaching humpback whale encounters, which resulted in some unusual images, like one above.
