Evening in Sydney
I am staying overnight in Sydney as I start my journey home. The flight from Melbourne was uneventful and I spent the afternoon and evening in the centre catching a last few shots of the Bridge and Opera House I really wanted an evening shot but the weather was not in my favour.
I started with a little bit of shopping and then headed for the harbour. The storm had been brewing and started just as I managed to get my waterproof on. Sydney rain seems wetter than most - there is just so much of it!! I decided that MacDonalds (it was close by) seemed a good idea for a while combining eating and sheltering.
I moved on round the Harbour, Opera House and through the Botanical Gardens to where I knew I would get the view of the Opera House in front of the Bridge. The weather ranged from drizzly to breezy but clear and then back to rain. I patiently waited for the lights to come on managing some shots with the camera on a bean bag on a bin! Eventually, just as the lights were right, I had to abandon my attempt as I couldn't keep the rain off the filters and I also couldn't see what I was doing. I really needed an assistant with an umbrella and a torch!
So this is the best attempt! Like the elusive koalas, this shot will have to wait for another occasion.
Tomorrow I fly up to Singapore. I hope to get a flight out to London but I fear I may not as there are very few spare seats and several of us wanting the stand by option. However, there are worse places to have to spend a day or so.
Tomorrow is also MonoMonday with the theme of 'On the Move'. As I am hosting March you can see why I have chosen this theme - I suspect my blip will feature some aspect of Changi Airport. Please tag your Mono blip mm57 and I will look at them as soon as I can. Forgive me if I am a bit slow this week but circumstances are a bit tricky for the next few days.
