Ross Uniting Church is the tallest building on the highest point on Church street. It is lit by a powerful orange spotlight that can be seen from miles around. In this shot, the warm rays light up the stained glass windows and against the cool sky, look like purple vestments. The beams rim the steeple as it points to the heavens.

The structure had reminded me of a rocket. I was thrilled to note that at that moment the pointy end was aimed at the centre of our galaxy and looked to be at stage T-0! "Solid rocket booster ignition and liftoff!" ;-)
