Promised long ago.. fulfilled now 🙂 Here are the pics form the Sydney trip we took in Jul ’13. Sydney harbor is indeed a beautiful place, both at night and in the day. Plentiful sunshine made the day even better… and that was in the peak of winters 😀
the snap above is a view of the harbor from the train station.
Up next is a panoramic view of the two icons of Sydney.. Opera house and the Sydney harbor bridge.
This photo has an interesting story and an anecdote 🙂
I had packed my light weight tripod for the trip.. after-all i had to get beautiful shots of the Sydney harbor at night… how could i miss those 😉
So we get to the park and i take out my tripod… set it up n all.. Next thing i try to mount my camera on it… and guess what.. the bracket on the camera is for my usual tripod… 😥
Well, i had to get those shots one way or another… so i found this lil wall at the waters edge.. its ends were tapered n not flat.. after a lot of camera acrobats i finally manage to get my camera stable and get a couple of shots needed for the panoramas n other shots. Its a success, gods must be happy on me 🙂
Come back home and realize the mounting bracket for the travel tripod is right in the top pocket of my bag… and so the story goes.
Now the anecote.. whatever happens.. happens for the greater good.. well is did here.. for me 😉 Had i had the tripod, i would have set it up somewhere safely on the walkway instead of dangling my camera right at the waters edge (that too on a tapered wall 😉 )… but i would have walked away with pretty std shots.. instead of these, which i somehow think came better.
Hut on the bridge…
This one came out quiet nice (according to yours truly 😀 )… Initially i had dismissed the shot to be too touristy n well.. std. But then in a creative bout of boredom lo and behold…
The three sisters…
Wonder where their heads are though 😉
Blue mountains national park.. a beautiful day trip (n probably tons more) close to Sydney. It has a lot more to offer than we could afford on a day trip though.
(Note to self… go back for more)
St Kilda Beach…
before you go “Wait..What.. how the… this aint Sydney.. you moron!!!”
I know 😛 but i just got a nice shot that i wanted to show off.. This is St Kilda beach in Melbourne. Really beautiful place to walk, dine n just about spend a nice evening at.
Thats all folks… Hope you had fun 🙂
