Neilsen Park Sunset at 10 Stops

The great thing about having a housemate who is also interested in photography is the random lets go for sunset suggestions! Which works out great.. most of the time.. this time he unfortunately left his memory cards at home.. and he shoots on the other side of the fence.. which means he cant use my SD cards.. and I cant use his CF!

So I got taken to a place in Sydney I hadnt been before.. well I had driven by.. I had even attempted to park and swim one summer.. but nevertheless a great harbour location which I hadnt visited. The western side of Neilsen Park (which is deceptive by name) gives quite a few rock outcrops that look over towards the city and the harbour bridge. I think next time ill shoot a little bit longer.. as you can see the city is minuscule when using the Sigma 10-20mm. Yes I did have my new toy in tow (the Yashica 124g) and yes I did fire some frames! So I loook forward to getting those up as a follow up blog to this.

Not much more to add bar the long exposures are still a lot of fun for me.. but still a lot of trial and error. Getting the timing right to ensure exposure and sharpness is maintained all the way to the edges is tough. Same deal comes to framing and cropping as the exposures are so long it can become quite easy to get caught up and miss light, colours and clouds during a long exposure that might span 5 to 10 minutes. This is technically week XX in my 52 week but this image makes up #11… it wont be strict as sometimes I might get a few shots in a week or one shot in a month

I have a colour version.. I am still unsure of.. I might save that and go and reshoot it in the near future.

Till next time..
