A Grey Old Day…

by on Jan.20, 2015, under Life, Photography

It was a grey old day in Sydney this morning. However it was before sunrise, I was in the city and I had all my gear (I know right…) so I headed to Dawes Point to see what could be made.

It was bleak, with a light drizzle served up with a drab colourless twilight and the sun was nowhere to be seen even after the scheduled sunrise time.

Up on Sydney’s Harbour bridge I did the best I could with the grey conditions at hand – I didn’t even bother to get any filters out…

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

About 15 minutes before sunrise and looking back towards the city from the southern pylon when this enormous cruise liner came into the harbour and docked at the OPT in Circular Quay.

After “sunrise” I moved back down the pedestrian walkway towards the city to frame up this nice pool of green over Dawes Point with the Opera House when a crack appeared in the sky briefly allowing this just a few minutes after sunrise.
