Brisbane After Nightfall

The Story Bridge (named after John Douglas Story) in Brisbane. Construction started in May 1935 and the bridge was opened for traffic on 6 July 1940.
 
One of the CityCat Ferries approaching the Eagle Street Pier. Brisbane operates 19 CityCat ferries, with the last one (The Spirit of Brisbane) launched on 4 October 2011. Dedicated to Brisbane’s community spirit during one of its toughest periods, the Spirit of Brisbane is decorated in distinctive colours, blue for the sky and river; green for new growth after the floods; maroon for the Queensland spirit and yellow in recognition of the way the sun shone through the clouds to help dry up the flood waters. Inside the Spirit of Brisbane there is also a permanent display of photographs taken during the flood clean-up.
 
Spirit of Brisbane has improved fuel efficiency and reduced engine exhaust and noise emissions. This means a smaller carbon footprint which Council offsets fully.
Below is a view of the Eagle Street Pier and Riverside Centre.

  1. Baie mooi nagfoto's! Ek neem aan jy gebruik 'n driepoot?

  2. Ek wag gelukkig genoeg om hierdie sonder 'n driepoot te kry. Daar is drie goed wat gehelp het – 'n reëling om die kamera op te rus, Nikon se "Vibration Reduction" tegnologie en 'n bietjie geluk. Dit help ook natuurlik om dertig foto's te neem van die een onderwerp en dan later die 29 wat uit fokus was, uit te vee…

  3. Ja, mense besef nie altyd dat die mooi foto baie keer die enigste sukses uit vele probeerslae is nie.
