Whilst scouting out the barracks (see here if you are wondering why), I thought I'd better get some other photos too, so as not to look too suspicious.😎
This is Melbourne's Shrine of Remembrance. For all the tall buildings visible from here, planning restrictions prevent towers from as much as casting a shadow across this view.
And closer. Then turning around ....
Shot with Fuji X-E3 and 27 f/2.8 or 55-200.
Having failed to capture some decent sunset pictures the other evening (as noted in the later entries to this post), I decided to go for sunrise instead.
OK, I cheated a little bit - the white balance is set to 'daylight fluorescent', which makes it even more golden looking.
On an evening filled with family taxi duties, I'd just spent two hours to travel 20km and decided I needed to take a break from the traffic before heading home again...
There must be close to 20 tower cranes visible in this shot!
This is a similar location to the earlier skyline photos and the first time I put the Fuji on a tripod. Used the phone app as a remote trigger, trying both the simple button mode and the more advanced live preview mode.
And a bit closer....
Unfortunately, there was a bit of a light haze, which shows up the light pollution and when trying to bring up some of the mid-tones, the sky lightens a lot.
..and with it darker evenings. If I'm lucky at get out of work at just the right time, I can get some pictures as I walk to the station. It's an area I've taken pictures before, but with the light at this time of evening, you just want to take more!
All shots Fuji X-E3 and 27 f/2.8.
