Winter is coming.....

Recommended Posts

Beautiful scene, Chris.  I like the lighting of the first one and the dynamic composition of the last one.    XF 27/2.8 seems to be a nice one.

I'm not sure where it sits in quality compared to other lenses in that range of focal lengths, but it certainly makes a compact system with the X-E3.  It fits nicely into a pocket, something I used to rely on a J1 for, so I've effectively replaced two cameras - the J1 and a D7000.  

 

Thanks for for the comments (and likes). I'm sure there will be more of this sort of thing and it's a good excuse not to work too late.

My favorite time of night when you can capture that sapphire blue sky. Well done.

It is a wonderful time, but so fleeting.  And also often so busy too.

Thank you for your beautiful pictures. I feel kind of bizarre knowing winter is near for you and that we just finally past it over here in snowy Canada!

 

Have a nice weekend, Daniel M

      This morning I found a bit of time and managed to get back to a location overlooking the Melbourne skyline to try and recreate some shots I took a little of 8 years ago.  The comparisons are interesting both in the changes in the cityscape and in the cameras available to me.
       
      This was the original shot I wanted to recreate - a crop from a 6Mpixel image taken with a Nikon D50 and 18-55

      And the newer image - a slight crop of a 24Mpixel image taken with a Fuji X-E3 and 18-55.

      Last night we took a trip to the cricket.  As I didn't take a big bag of gear, the game itself wasn't much of a photo opportunity.

      The journey home provided more photo opportunities.

      Shortly after I first arrived in Melbourne I took a picture of Flinders St station from across the river in Southbank.  The station was all lit up, but the sky was not quite black, still a deep blue.  I really liked it, but it was only a 2 MPixel image.  For years I've wanted to get back and take a bigger version, but never quite managed it.  One time, I was just a bit too late and the sky was already black (see here) and another time, the station was wrapped in scaffolding for renovation works.  However, this week I finally managed it!!!!😁
       
      So, here is the new version:

      Flinders St Station
       
      And this is the original:

      The angles are a little bit different, but growth of the trees in the intervening 13.5 years made that necessary to avoid blocking some of the key features of the station.
       
      I also grabbed a few other shots whilst there.  I think this one works better as black and white as the colours of the city lights draw my eyes away from the bar on the island below the bridge.
