Trey Ratcliff Photowalk – 360˚ Photosphere…

by on Jun.20, 2016, under Life, Photography

Spent a very nice afternoon and evening at the Sydney Trey Ratcliff Photowalk. We started at the Archibald Fountain in Hyde Park and finished for sunset at Mrs Macquarie’s Chair down on the harbour.

Trey Ratcliff Photowalk – Mrs Macquarie’s Chair

Mrs Macquarie’s Point is often a spectacular location for sunset on the harbour. With the sun setting behind Sydney’s iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge, along with uninterrupted views of the Sydney CBD skyline across the waters of Farm Cove it’s an ideal spot for photography. Unfortunately the weather Gods didn’t give us good colour and colour for sunset but the light was soft and beautiful with a nice blue twilight to follow.

I’m still just starting to experiment with these 360˚ photospheres taken with the DJI Phantom 4 drone and the DronePan software. This is my third full 360˚ panorama with the drone. This little interactive window gives you a birds eye view of us taking photos at this spectacular location soon after sunset.

Using your mouse or keyboard (arrow keys) you can control your view and pan around the scene (and even zoom in and out). Clicking the square box icon towards the top left corner also allows you to run it full screen.

Once the light had dropped to darkness after 5:30PM we headed out and back to the city. Time to join a group of friends for dinner, drinks and much photographic and other banter at a local city pub. Good times…
