It was never my intention to hire a car in Sydney; the plan was always to do the city “pedestrianised” which worked great until a day-trip by ferry to Fort Denison in the harbour.
What an amazing view was there to greet me, perfect for a sunset skyline! But along with the view came a sign: you weren’t allowed on the island after the last boat (which was around 5:15pm). For the first time since I had been in town, a cruise ship wasn’t blocking the entire skyline so I figured it might be worth venturing further afield to get the shot I had in my head. So, a bit of rushed hunting (and booking of cars) lead to me driving out to Bradleys Head in Friday rush-hour traffic to see if the sky would open up for me that night.
And it did. Granted, I was there for a long time (and actually missed the last bit of colour in the sky through packing up too soon – I really should listen to my own advice more often!) but at least I managed to capture this before things went a little too crazy in the harbour. A long exposure can certainly help to hide the odd boat or two crossing the water, but when an entire sailing fleet started racing right in front of my camera it really was time to go.
One day I’ll have to look up the history to Bradleys Head in more detail, but if Bradley was a person, he certainly had a great view.
