“Finally!” I thought to myself while photographing the opera house in Sydney. Yes, I have never been to Sydney before and this is my very first visit there. I knew myself that I must have at least seen the Sydney opera house once if I’m there, it is an icon of the city! I carried my lens in my backpack and while nearing the bay just across the water, I took out my 70-200mm f2.8 L for few test shots! As I got nearer, I realized that 50mm f1.2 L would be good too and it framed nicely into my 5d II!
It was almost 1730hr when I started taking photos of the opera house, I loved the sky as it gets darker as shown in the image below. And I have also waited patiently for the spotlights to be turned on and give a nice light cast on the opera house. I mounted my camera on my tripod and took long exposure for this image to even out the water and to get nice lights around.
