Brisbane Sunrise Photo

Only 100 Prints Available

Brisbane is without a doubt one of the most beautiful cities in Australia. Endearingly known to many as the River City, the mighty Brisbane River runs alongside Brisbane before winding through the eastern suburbs and heading out into Moreton Bay.

In late 2016 I headed to Queensland to setup our new ‘Beautiful Brisbane’ 1 day photography course. My wife Suzy and 10 month old Zach accompanied me, staying in a hotel next to the magnificent Story Bridge.

Unfortunately poor little Zach managed to come down with an ear infection soon after arriving in Brisbane which resulted in very little sleep for all of us!

The second morning of our trip, after another sleepless night I rose from bed at 4am to check the wind and cloud cover then decided to head down to the South Bank precinct, anticipating some fairly calm conditions that might offer some interesting reflections.

When I arrived I scouted along the edge of the Brisbane River until I settled on this composition and setup my gear to wait for the peak of the sunrise.

I normally use a graduated ND filter in a situation like this to balance the light between the sky and the water however when unpacking my bag I realised that I had left my graduated filters back at home in Victoria!

Thankfully the calm conditions kept the light variation within the camera’s capable range allowing me to capture this shot in one frame, with no filters or exposure blending required!

As the sunrise peaked I captured just 2 frames, settling on this one as my favourite.

I jumped straight on the phone to the guys at NiSi Filters after the shoot. They express posted some new graduated filters to me, arriving at our hotel reception the very next day. Thanks a million guys!
