Story Bridge

Blue Hour.

Shot from Fortitude Valley this evening at the end of a flickr meet that started at the Caxton Hotel, went to the The Powerhouse, Newfarm Park and then ended up here.

See where this picture was taken.

    Awesome capture David! Always looks good of a nite time!
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Cecily :) Quite similar to one I did at this time last year, but it's always nice to revisit locations.
    Thanks Pete - yeah, as iconic as Sydney's Coat-hanger :)

    Just beautiful!

    Thanks, it's a good spot for a Story Bridge photo, although it'd be better without the fence so you could get right to the edge of the cliff. (understandably, the council frowns on such activities)

    I climb over the wall at the rotunda on the Kangaroo Point cliffs. Hmmmmm. Gets me thinking ;)
  • David de Groot said:
    I'd have climbed over the fence there but it's topped with spikes and well, I value what's between my legs ;-)
  • FrAcTuReD...fOtOs said:
    @ David: LOL. Know what you mean!

    Wonderful atmosphere here!
    (Can't believe there's only been four people comment.)
    I love the layering of colour, the lead up to the bridge and the city skyline beyond... Great shot.

    Thanks Michael. As for the lack of comments, well it's a shot that's really been done to death by just about everyone in Brisbane (hell I've done it on three separate occasions). But it is rather pretty. :)

    Love it - could shoot the Story Bridge morning, noon and night :)
  • David de Groot said:
    mezza76au - It's definitely a pretty good subject ;-)

    Beautiful! Very pretty colours. The fading dusk really set this off.
    I never made it to this side of Bris during my week stay. Really wanted to shoot from Kangaroo Point too. Meh, maybe next time.

    KP's not a bad spot for a cityscape. Best to do it about 10-20mins after sunset, on a weekday (more lights in the buildings).
    Wilson's Outlook (where I shot this), is the prime spot for Story Bridge shots though.
