Artist's Description

This was shot long after sunset on Easter Saturday 2009. If you said the landmark was the Sydney Opera House, you’re absolutely right.

We were walking across from the ferry terminal at Circular Quay when I came to a halt. In the distance, the Opera House, with its distinctive sail-like design (which mirrors the sails often seen on the harbour) was lit so softly that it looked as if it was actually perched on the top deck of this harbour ferry.

The angle was intriguing, and the subtle lighting across the late Jorn Utzon’s masterpiece was a perfect contrast for the bright lights of the ferry.

The only problem was that I never use a tripod, so I had to try and ensure that the image did not produce the out-of-focus shimmer that often characterises photographs shot in darkness. In these situations, I hold the camera very loosely, rather than holding it with hands rigidly braced.

If you like this shot, you might be interested to see an image called Heavy Metal + Opera, which shows the Opera House just before dusk, taken from Milsons Point on the other side of the harbour.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F5.6, 1/6 sec, ISO 800, focal length 78mm.
