Shot Notes

Happy New Year 2019. May your dreams come true. These are the Sydney new year fireworks. I left my van behind and took the train into the city from my temporary base in the Blue Mountains where I have been enjoying a relaxing Christmas with the Australian branch of my family.

2018 was the most photogenic year so far. It was also the start of my longest journey. In December I revisiting the last 8 months of travel pics to create 2 years worth of stock photography in a few weeks. This brought my total to 700 images at Shutterstock. This averages out to 1 a week from 14 years of photo submissions.

This year I will continue south until the March equinox which should put me somewhere in Tasmania for the first time. I will return to the Blue Mountains in April and resolve to have another 100 stock photos by then.

    Lovely photo! Did you get wet?

    Thanks, I was rugged up, waterproof and under the bridge before the rain started which was fine until it got really heavy and the underside of the bridge started spilling out huge licks of water which drenched a few unlucky souls like a losing contestant on a Noel Edmonds show.

    Good to have a different view as most aim straight for the bridge. I think your use of the bridge was more practical. Happy 2019.

    The only other time I photographed them was 5 years ago from the other side. More traditional view.
