My favourite one of the night! It's a HDR of the city and river showing the bridge and...other stuff.

I can't make it sound good, but oh well. Hope you like it!

:D

Thank you!
I'm just running out of ideas at the moment, as you can see from the last few that I've been uploading.
I'm new to where I am, but hopefully I can find something. I really would like to take a nightshot of the country sky with the stars and all. Or a beach at sunset? hmm.

But thanks again ^_^

Haha I still haven't found a beach yet!
I'm trying to work on that one because I'm in the East of Australia now and the sun sets in the West! And I don't wake up early enough to catch the sunrise...

Oh man, first world problems...

But I did drive out far to some random place with no lights one night to take a good sky shot. It was beautiful that night (maybe better if the moon hadn't been so bright). I took the photo, thinking that it couldn't get more perfect...

Then I realised there was no card in the camera. D:

That's really bad! I had this problems, too. A long time ago. Never again.
You have to stay awake till sunrise :D What time was it the first day we started talking? 3,4,5 in the morning in Australia? Okay you have "winter" so when does the sun go up? Did you live in the West before?

Haha yes, I lived in the West.

Aaaand yes you caught me out...I sometimes do stay awake till sunrise...The sun goes up at abouuutt...5 30 I think? I'm not sure. I guess I need to find the right spot first, then maybe I can go there. :)

Thank you! Yes, this seemed, to me, at least, to have the best water. It's a shame the bridge was illuminated so much though, it seemed to overexpose a bit.

They dulled the lights down by the next time I was there :D
