Artist's Description

There are times when I’m asked to jump into one of the Company Limmos and take clients, under the care of the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, to medical appointments in Sydney. Such trips are always a pleasure for me, as I love to chat to the Vets and listen to the amazing stories they tell of days gone by. As I’m an old ex-Nasho (conscripted National Serviceman) myself, they feel freer with what they can talk about.

While I’m waiting, I usually go and park at Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair, which is an extension of the Domain and Botanical Gardens. This is probably one of the most popular tourist spots in Sydney, apart from the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge precincts. There are so many wedding and tourist photos taken with this background. Of course, I had my Sony with me….

That late afternoon, a storm was approaching Sydney from the N-E, with dark clouds over North Sydney. There was a halo in the high clouds around the sun and from one of the lower clouds, the light broke through and shone like a spotlight on the Sydney Opera House. This aspect of the picture hasn’t been manipulated – it would be beyond my capabilities to do so! There has been minor cropping and adjustment of levels.

Sony W350, 1/400 sec@ f8, FL 4.70mm, ISO 80, Auto exposure and WB.
Cropping and levels in PSE 3. Thank you Carl Zeiss!
