What makes me smile a sunrise like this !
Right Spot – CHECK
No Boats – CHECK
Enough Cloud – CHECK
That Consistency to the Water – CHECK
Lights in varying colours – Check
Reflections on Water – Check
Run for the D300 and the tripod – DEFINITELY

Caught a range of shots on this Friday morning reached my vantage point about 5.30am. I saw these reflections and ran for the camera.

Sydney Harbour like a mill pond before the many vessels start their morning trips and disturbing it’s surface. The other factor is that look to the water surface that landscape photographers might know it’s like a oily look to the water that lends itself to wonderful reflective surface.

It took many shots of Sydney Harbour this morning, if, and you should have seen the sunrise that followed . WAIT ! yes i have photos of that as well.

Equipment: Manfrotto Tripod, Nikon D300 Nikon 18-200mm Lens
Technique: 5 Bracketted Exposures, Photomatix 3.2, Capure NX

Sydney is the capital of the state of New South Wales in Australia

    oh, stunning, I have just been playing with my camera canon 40D all evening (we’ve got a full moon) and tripod to try and figure out aperture, exposure etc to stop being lazy and letting the camera do the job for me. So now i can understand how you must have felt this morning! congratulations on these fantastic captures….
