We've had some really colourful morning skies of late but I'm usually seeing them on the way home from work. I got up early yesterday as I've wanted to get a shot of the Sydney Harbour bridge at sunrise from Observatory Hill. Typically the day I get to shoot the sky doesn't come to the party. Still happy with this just before dawn shot. Travelled light with just the A7 along with Minolta MD 50 f1.4 and 24 f2.8. The old coat hanger.

Went to Martin Place to pay my respects to the victims of this weeks tragedy. There were some beautiful tributes and it was good to see the city was business as usual.

Loved the old clipper moored in the harbour. I gave it a bit of a vintage look. Balmoral by scotty-70, on Flickr Balmoral Beach Bathers Pavilion.
