The view of Sydney Harbour from our hotel one morning this past weekend. I don’t want you thinking I’ve become some kind of early-bird … I mean you can if you want to but it’s just not true 😉


This was taken leaning out of the window a ways to get the left pylon of the Harbour Bridge in shot. It’s also shot handheld at 1/30th of a second with an aperture of f/2.8 and ISO 6400… I mention this only because it demonstrates my laziness in that I didn’t use my tripod which was sitting on the table next to the camera … mind you the tripod wouldn’t have got the camera out the window so anyways … err.. was there a point to this story?

Here’s a second picture taken at sunset the previous afternoon from the ferry between McMahons Point and Circular Quay. There must have been a bushfire burning inland which brought the smoke across the sun and created the haze visible beyond the Sydney Opera House in the sunrise picture.


In an interesting aside I posted this image on Google+ on Saturday afternoon and by last night it had been viewed over 60,000 times … I guess people like it 🙂
