I've waited months to get this shot - there is a 3-4 week period twice a year when things line up! Same spot up on Studley Park Road that I have used previously. I was hoping desperately that the cloud didn't thicken as I drove over.
I might post a few more once I get through reviewing them.

A few week ago my wife and I spent a few days in Madrid/Spain. I like this city a lot, it felt really authentic Spanish. Not flooded with tourists and lots of interesting places to visit. Plus great food!
I took a compact gear set with me, an Olympus E-M10II camera with Olympus 12-40mm lens and a Samyang fisheye lens. All images processed in Capture One Pro from RAW.
1. Fisheye view from the rooftop bar at 26th floor of our hotel
2. And a "normal" view
3. For fun, shot with in-camera Key Line Art Filter
4. Fisheye view of the ceiling of the Cathedral of Saint Mary the Royal of La Almudena
5. Another fisheye image (last one, promised)
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.
