Why formation?
the brilliance bursting through the gaps in the blanket of clouds;
the draping voile of rain that the brilliance of golden light might have distracted you from;
     Isn't it a little bit contrived of the heaven?
and my tower of giraffes (yes, apparently tower is the correct term. I almost went with "pack")

What are the giraffes doing tonight? - Melbourne Sunset

All on one evening, below are photos taken within just half an hour. Once the sun starts setting, lighting in the sky changes very quickly from one moment to next. On Sunday evening the cloud formations was unusual from the start. The perfect amount of wind was blowing and transforming the clouds as the lighting in the sky changed. The two elements combined into a spellbinding spectacular show for Melbourne that night.

The camera was pointing in the direction of Webb Dock & Sandridge Lookout, Port Melbourne. 
You can see the large container cranes, which I like to call my giraffes. Looks like only one of them was not resting and not busy 'drinking' that night.

Mechanical Giraffes

Silhouettes of the cranes in the distance: a tower of giraffes gathered by the water, some drinking, amidst the strata of red dust on the Serengeti, in the setting sun.

Anyway, Melbourne is beautiful.
