Photographer's Note

Brisbane River

The Kookaburra Queens are two paddle steamers brought to Brisbane in 1988 for the World Expo. This shot was taken 180 degrees to the left of my previous post with the docking area and Kangaroo Point Cliffs. I was in two minds about including the blue glow near the top left, produced by one of the skyscrapers, but I liked the reflection on the water it produced and the resultant colour addition. In the background is the ever impressive Story Bridge and some of the residential towers in the northern corner of the city. I took these shots while waiting to board the boat for a 3 hour river cruise, a great way to see the city lights if you are ever in town. Almost no post processing, just the frame, thirteen second exposure, F/5, focal length 6mm.
