Tempe, Cooks River, sunset

The view across the Cooks River at sunset from Tempe towards the southern suburb of Wolli Creek. I took two photos a few minutes apart and I couldn't decide which one I liked better because one had more colourful reflections in the water, while the other had more colours in the sky. The other photo can be seen here.
