High Above Sydney

This evening I had the opportunity to shoot images of Sydney at sunset and twilight from Centrepoint Tower — using my tripod.

As I understand it, tripods are not normally permitted, but one of the guys from the Flickr group FOCUS, of which I am a part, made arrangements so that 20 of us could take our tripods into the tower’s observation deck for proper photography.

I shot a small number of compositions, but this was the stand-out image from the session:

The shoot was somewhat challenging, both in terms of internal reflections off the glass, and throngs of tourists, but despite those challenges, I was able to land a fairly pleasing image.

It was great to get out with the FOCUS crew again and capture an image which normally would not have been possible.
