Red Mist - P.O.T.D 03/09/2014

Once again it's the iconic Sydney Opera House! It is a very great place to shoot and I do enjoy watching the sunrise because of the serenity of it and occasionally you get amazing colours like this picture. What's amazing about this is because the colour was only there for about 10 minutes and it's gone, so it does make you treasure the moment because you never know how long it will last.

This photo was taken with the Nikon D800e and the 24-70 f/2.8 lens. The settings were 5 second exposure at f/4 and ISO 250. People often say it's a lucky shot and I am not saying that luck has not part in it, but prepared people get lucky with these shots because they put themselves in the situation to take advantage when the opportunities come. I have been to this location numerous times and more often than not, the weather didn't turn out as good as expected, but by placing yourself there, you can be ready when the nice light and colour present itself! I really enjoy photographing around Sydney and you can check out my album here, hope you enjoy the photo!
