Another two and a half thousand kilometres travelling along the New South Wales coastline has yielded some shots I'm quite happy with. I scouted maybe a dozen locations with five having the right combination of light and subject to inspire me.

I was particularly excited to find myself below the harbour bridge during an impressive twilight that filled the sky with colour. My only trouble was boats. I'd wanted the water in front of the Opera House to be clear but somehow during each very long exposure one or more boats would drift across the frame. Finally the vessels departed just in the last moments of twilight when the sky became momentarily quite vivid, the city lights more abundant, and bridge floodlit. Nice.

Incredibly the following dawn was even better. I'd gone in search of a particular wharf, only to find access limited and the scene spoilt by advertising. Wandering around in the dark, the place to myself, I found boats I liked this time. I was quite taken by the peace of the scene, the water dead still and a gorgeous fiery sky. The boats held steady as rocks, even over long exposures. Couldn't have asked for more.

I'd gambled, planning my trip when the forecast was for rain and thunderstorms every day. That worked to my advantaged sometimes, with great clouds when I needed them, but it also made some locations difficult, Shoal Bay being one of them. I was drenched and fighting high winds before finally giving up. Never-the-less, I came away with a nice moody shot.

The 12 hours drive home seemed slower than it had at the start of the trip when the future was full of possibilities. Now I'm hanging out for the next chance to get away. Probably something local, maybe the mountains this time.
