Making the most of it

On a recent trip to Adelaide in South Australia on which most of my time was spent catching up with family and friends I found one evening where there was a  window of opportunity to take a walk with the camera in hand.

 

Whilst walking around the new development over the rail way tracks in the CBD there were a few very nice architectural shots however much of the access was restricted due to building works still underway. As part of this development the Adelaide oval has been re-developed along with a new footbridge over the Torrens.  As evening developed the sweep of the bridge and the lights made for the best scene of the day.  Now it lacks the grandeur of other cities with soaring buildings and spectacular lights but all the same it was still worth dropping the camera down on a small ledge by the waters edge and doing the long exposure over the water.

 

The reverse image I haven’t tried due to the extensive building work going on but I am sure that come middle of the year when we are back in Adelaide and most of the works are finished the view into the CBD at dusk may well be a beautiful shot.

 

Hope you like this and I am looking forward to the opportunity to do the reverse shot looking at the CBD.
