Back on the weekend 2-5 June a group of us travelled over to Sydney to experience the lights of the 'Vivid Sydney' display. The Sydney opera house was lit up in a continuously changing display... plus a lot of other buildings around Circular Quay... and the harbour bridge... very spectacular. Here are a few photos from the trip.

And this photo (I had to pay for... not allowed your own camera) is of me doing a 'Sky Walk' on the top of Sydney tower 268m asl.... a birthday present from my oldest and family. Well tied on no chance of falling from this glass bottom platform... quite fun.

My photos shot on the D850 with 35 1.4 and 105 1.4 ( night shots mostly 4000 ISO and f1.4- 2.2.. the displays kept changing so needed a fast..ish shutter)... even the Skywalk camera was a D3400

Peter................................................ f8....and be there....

Very vivid! nice stuff there.

Thanks, Dennis.
