    Beautiful blue sky with white fluffy clouds.

    Great shot David. Mt Cootha lookout would have to be the best place around the Centenary Suburbs to photograph Brisbane and the city from. It's about 5 minutes down the road from me so I'm in the central for everything. Anyways onto the photo;
    The sky is absolutely awesome. The color is rich blue closer to you and as it goes towards the city it dulls down to a calmer blue. Clouds go well with it as well. Sharp and clear

    On word - Polariser :)
    Thanks Margot :) Yeah I dragged myself out of the house, despite feeling crook, as the clouds looked promising - 'twas worth the trip.
    It's not a bad spot, although a little done to death. I'd really prefer something slightly closer to the city and lower, or much higher, but without getting in an helicopter, that's not going to happen ;-)

    Great shot, will definately have to invest in a polariser after seeing that. Have you ever tried Mt Gravatt Lookout? Its a big lower and with a zoom lens you get a great shot of the city from there.

    Can't say I've been to Mt Gravatt lookout... 'tis way down on the wrong side of town to me, but might be worth a trip. (Mt Coot-tha is about an hours drive from home as it is).

  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks :) They weren't exactly what I was expected (from the weather forecast), but did nicely all the same.

    Mt Gravatt is also a long way from the city, similar to Mt Coot-tha.
