Observatory Hill

Observatory Hill is right near Sydney’s City centre and  is one of the most spectacular spots to watch sunset. It offers beautiful panoramic views of Sydney Harbour and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. There is nothing better than heading there on a summer afternoon, relaxing on the grass, as you look at the spectacular view.

When the sun starts to set, the entire area gets washed with beautiful warm golden light. I had wanted to capture this image for a while with a clear sky so the beautiful golden light that washed across the scene complimented the clear blue sky.

This wasn’t an easy photo to take because it is a very popular spot with tourists and locals, so there were quite a few people in each photo frame I took. And as I was shooting a panorama, it made it even more challenging. I had to take multiple frames as people moved. Sometimes people didn’t move for a few minutes, so I had to wait patiently. Then in post production on the computer I had to blend people out of the shot using the multiple photos that I had taken of each frame. It was very time consuming, but so worth it in the end.
