Sydney City after Sunset, A View from Waverton, Sydney, NSW, Australia

Made this shot about a week ago from the Larkin Street lookout that is located in Waverton, Sydney, Australia. It offers a very beautiful panorama view to the Sydney Harbour, city and the Harbour Bridge. It is one of 12 best photography spots for classical Sydney skyline. It’s probably not a really well known spot, especially among tourists, but it’s definitely worth visiting it.

In the afternoon very nice clouds formed above Sydney so I expected stunning sunset. However wind moved all clouds away from the city. I made a few shots but that wasn’t what I expected. I decided to stay a little bit longer and made this panorama of the city. It was worth doing that as the twilight was quite nice. I really love shooting at twilight. Sometimes I’m asked if such a photo is an HDR. Usually it’s not an HDR, but just proper timing. For those of you who want to learn how to shoot in twilight I can recommend a really good book on that matter: “Below the Horizon. Understanding Light at the Edges of Day” from David duChemin’s Craft & Vision eBook library. Truly speaking literally ANY book from Craft & Vision library worth much more than $5 you spend on it.
