Another great image filling the canvas - but I can't believe the heat! My oven doesn't get that hot! (only joking)

Awesome Photograph!
Coincidently I would have been standing only a few hundred meters away from you when you took this. You are right about the heat; I only wore a shirt, shorts and thongs the whole night. I was frustrated that I didnít have my camera on me, but I couldnít trust it at an all night party in St. Kilda.
