The MV FRAM from Hurtigruten at 68°17'S, 66°57'W, Antarctica, Red Rock Ridge

The Fram..... carrying the name of a famous ship.... I understand the original is now in a museum.... I bet this one is a lot more comfortable 😀

Hi jwilton.
Very nice shots, thank you for joining in, I have used a bollard as a tripod before, it is still difficult not to wobble around on the rounded top, I think you did well.
Just passing or we’re you working on the dock or awaiting her arrival just to get a shot?

Cheers, Graham.


Thank you Graham, This is just under the Sydney Harbour Bridge and there a many bollards to choose from, they are not all the same on the top.
I swim every morning at a pool under the Bridge and take my camera with me just in case.

Cheers, John

Very nice pictures. I especially like the first one. I like the city in the background.

Thank you Click.

I particularly like the first shot. All the elements come together to make it a great picture. I'm not sure that it would have been better with another camera.... yes, you might have gotten it a bit sharper, or you could have shot HDR to get more range, but you would have lost the look.... And besides, the moment would have been gone.

Thank you Don, I quote you all the time "the best camera is the one in your hand".

Queen Mary 2 quietly enters Sydney at Harbour 5:30am today. Hand held on a boldard 0.8s f4.0 iso640 with my point and click SonyRX100 (sorry, this is my walkabout camera, I had left my 6D at home).

The combination of colorful lights looks perfect with the shot!
Totally Loved it!

Not sure what the liners were, taken while waiting for a bonfire display in 2015. From possibly the very same spot Graham stood to take his in the first post!

Hi Matthew.
Nice shot, if you know the Mayflower Park, I was roughly where the road turns away from the water to leave, may have been slightly more towards the ice cream van!  :) mmmmm ice cream!  :)

Cheers, Graham.

Thanks :) Not quite the same place then, I was about halfway along the pier where the RedJet departs from. Always a great choice to capture fireworks with reflections over the water :)

Hi Matthew.
Sounds like you were quite close to visiting the island then! Do you ever come over here?

Cheers, Graham.

I have been over a few times over the years, we usually go view the Lymington Ferry though. Can't resist a trip to the Needles.

Hi Matthew.
Yes the Needles are good, but the battery, a longish walk or an expensive bus ride (no public vehicular access) above the Needles is much more interesting especially when you get to the rocket engine range!

Cheers, Graham.
