Recently I was faced with this view of Sydney and oh my god was it incredible, Sydney has an amazing skyline. I remember walking to up here and went passed a hotel with a roof top swimming pool, which can be seen in the lower left of the image, and I thought to myself “Wow ! what a view they have”. But ! then I saw this and I completely forgot about the pool and just enjoyed the sun setting over the city. This has to be the “Best view of Sydney” I have ever seen ! Amazing !

I recently purchased the brand new Sony RX 100 mk ii, so follow this space to see some HDR from the camera and what it’s capable of. I found that I can’t always take my DSLR out shooting with me as I pretty much need a backpack of stuff. I didn’t want to go the mirrorless option yet as I don’t think they are quite there yet, as in technology wise. Instead I went for a compact camera which does not require any lenses and can fit in my pocket. This way it will always be there for me to use if I see a scene or landscape I like. How many times have you said “Oh if I only I had my camera with me” ?!


Cheers, Luke
