Bridal Shoot, Dawes Point, The Rocks Sydney


Not mine 🙂 Opera House was lit up red for the lunar new year. These soon to be newly weds were having their shoot taken. So I took a few quick shots with the new 100mm Macro L lens. I am impressed with the auto focus speed and reach.

Opera House Sun Rise

Been getting up early a few mornings now for sunrise shots.  The sky has been very clear.  Perhaps a little for really moody and exciting shots.  But this gives me a bit more time to practice and keep it simple.  At least, the weather has been warm enough.  At about 5.30am, there is more light than I expect.  You can see alot of features.  Apart from the runners, bikers and fishermen, there are late party goers who just want to sit down, have a deep meaningful chat and watch the sunrise.  On the following Saturday, a couple from Cairns flew down to catch the holiday P&O cruise.  They were so excited to watch the sunrise and their boat coming in to the passenger terminal.  Hopefully, this will be the first of a series of sun rise shots.
