"the bridge…the one glimmering light…the clouds hanging grimly in the sky…the misty colours pierced gently..." These were some of the thought processes going through my mind as I waited till dusk in order to take the darker more cosmopolitan photo of Sydney.
I had seen so many bright, sunny pictures of Sydney (a cliche i`m guilty of myself) whilst the night photos seemed to try and replicate cities such as New York. In creating this piece I wanted to avoid that, and capture a picture that is 100% Sydney and 100% unique. My interpretation, my change, my view of the City
So one train ride to Milson`s Point, a few hours waiting till dusk and many pieces of camera equipment dropped in the harbour later I perched my camera up onto the wooden sleepers, waited for the boats to clear, focused and shot.
One more from Ostler Peak in the Uinta Mountain Range. This one was taken well after the sun went down. Clouds make the peak appear to be a brooding volcano. What you're seeing is a 13 second exposure, so the clouds are moving for 13 seconds over the top of the peak, and that's a near full moon above and to the left of the peak, covered by smoke from the wildfires raging across the state at the time.
After a lovely day exploring the South West Corner of Western Australia, we ended up at Greens Pool, I spent some time snorkeling around (not a recommended activity in Autumn.. as it is freezing cold.. and then waited for dusk.
There was some controlled burning off in the area, so we were lucky to get some great colour in the sky.

The Granite at cape cornwall is very distictive for its colour and formation and it makes a great oppertunity for a photograph.
These shots are from cape cornwall on the same trip as cornish heathland and capes headland this place is so special, so peaceful and one of the most buetiful places to shoot at many photographers say that 'you can shoot there only once.'
