Verticals

I cruised around to Glebe to take some shots of the Anzac Bridge from over on the expressway, which I did once before many years ago when I first got a camera – however I found that the view is now blocked by a great big boat maintenance shed :-/ so I wandered over to the very western side of the bay to see what was there and found myself in some boat yard thingy, probably private land, but the gate was open and no big dogs there 🙂 . The morning light was about as dull as it could get and to be honest, the cup of coffee post photo taking could not come fast enough 🙂

However, my motto has always been, a good photographer will always come up with a decent image irrespective of the conditions, hence I persevered …I am not overly happy with it, but its better than sending them all to the electronic trash can 🙂

The colours were ok, but the strong variation in the sky meant the blues and yellows were very mottled detracting from the scene, hence simplifying it with a BW conversion seemed to be the right option and pushed the interest back onto the composition. I did like the way that the scene conveys all the different verticals, hence the title, of the masts, the bridge, the city skyline (particularly the Tower) and the finally the trees..

  1. Its not often the harbour is this still and you can get away with long exposure stills, especially in a panorama. Good work.

    I recommend you visit the foreshore of Blakwattle Bay, on the opposite side of the Fish Markets. Day or night there are many great shots to be had. 😎
