I shot this one in Sydney a couple of days ago from across the harbour perched up on top of a rock face in the botanical gardens. I got comfy and watched the sun set behind the Sydney skyline with my Nikon D800 and it is a pretty popular spot for wedding photographers I found out. Hence why I climbed up on a rock to escape all the fuss down on the waters edge, not that I’m against weddings but I don’t want to ruin a couples day by photo bombing their images haha. Now that I think about it, on my trip to Sydney this weekend I saw heaps of wedding photographers… I suppose it is spring isn’t it 🙂
Anyways, from my vantage point I had amazing 270 degree views of Sydney and the CBD looked really cool the way it reflected the last rays of sunlight. I love how glass can look like every colour of the rainbow all at once, like the surface of oil in a puddle of water.
I eventually chose this composition where I zoomed right in on the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House creating a unique composition of the two together. What caught my eye was that there were all these ants climbing on the bridge ! hehe, well they looked like ants from this far away. If you look closely in this photo you can distinctly make out three groups of people doing the Harbour Bridge climb, sunset would be a fantastic time for it 🙂
