Sydney Hot Spots

Diamonds in your own back yard

As the old saying goes… ‘There are diamonds in your own back yard’, it certainly applies to photography. Whilst I am always excited to find a new ‘hot spot’ for photography, I like the challenge of shooting something or some where I have shot many times before, but try to capture in a different way. I had a couple of concepts in my head that I wanted to try, one was shooting the Opera House from the northern side of Sydney Harbour, but rather than use a wide angle lens, get in nice and tight with my zoom. Another of my planned shots was to shoot Luna Park at night, I wanted to get nice and close and include every last detail… I wanted every light bulb to shine… I wanted you to feel like you were a child standing at the entry looking up in oar. Here are the results…

Another successful Photowalk

Observatory Hill to The Rocks

I started to worry about the weather towards the start of the walk, it was overcast and there definitely wasn’t going to be a sunset… just grey! I do like clouds in my photo’s as it adds drama to the shot.

We had a good turnout (I never did count the total numbers) but let’s call it 20+… we Kicked off at Observatory Hill, a purely magnificent location for photography, evident by the amount of wedding photo’s being taken up on this hill! We then slowly wandered down to the Harbour Bridge and finished at the Harbour Forecourt.

As always, plenty of friendly people attended of all skill level and it was great to see some familiar faces from previous walks.

today’s iCandy – NightBridge

I took this towards the end of the walk. If you have been following me for a while you will know this is the composition of my award winning ‘Sunkissed Bridge’ shot… I thought it would be nice at night too!
