Watching, waiting

This young lady came prepared, she had two cameras and was pumping out some panorama images, probably be a darn sight better than mine 🙂

It was a chilly evening, however it certainly did not deter the tourists and photo enthusiasts down on the northern side of the harbour, i was cruising over the bridge on the regular sunday run with the girls and noted that the sky was looking potentially photo worthy 🙂

It is hard to get something different here, well i think so anyway, there are so many awesome shots of the city skyline which are hard to compete with – so after taking the usual panoramic shots I thought I would go for the vertical panorama style instead…not overly different, however the human element and the pretty wicked sky gave it a little extra kick in my books.

I hope ya'all had a great weekend

  1. Great shot Gerard … always intrigues me how that human element really makes some photos. This is one of those for sure. She would probably love to have a copy of this photo also. Cheers

  2. Fantastic +Gerard Blacklock​ and what a nice sky Sydney delivered today. I had my wife's birthday party to attend so I'll just have to be jealous of what you guys got. I have a serious itch I need to scratch at the moment, road trip is needed once the moon starts rising later 🙂

  4. +Graeme Andrew very true, that element can really bring a landscape alive!
    The lady was off on the other section taking a few pictures when I asked if she would mind stepping out on this little wharf for me so I could capture a few with her in it – she was happy to do so (with a danish? accent), but I think asking for a email address was probably gonna freak her out, especially me in my hoodie and beanie looking like some bogan 🙂
