Cities, like cats, will reveal themselves at night - Rupert Brooke
As my time in Brisbane comes to a close (for this chapter anyway), I recently had an opportunity to spend an evening at one of my favourite CBD vantage points. Kangaroo Point is one of the oldest suburbs of Brisbane, directly east of the CBD giving it some of the best views of the city at sunset. The cliffs sit over 20m above the city giving a brilliant view both up and down the river, across to South Bank and all the way to Mount Cootha in the distance. I also used this opportunity to test out my Fisheye lens for night long exposures. After doing quite a few long exposure shots I became well aware of my 40 year old tripod’s limitations. That said, I did leave it on a bench for 5 mins as I wandered around and it was still there when I came back! This outing prompted me to speed up my purchase of a new tripod (stay tuned for a review later) as I’m becoming more uneasy about locking a proper coin worth of gear on a not overly steady tripod.
Hope you enjoy.
