ENGLISH: This photo was taken just before sunset at Bronte Beache. You can see the Bronte Rock Pool in the FG looking out towards the Pacific Ocean. Although the weather is getting colder here in Sydney (we are well into Autumn now), the water was quite warm at 17C.
I would love to tell you that I jumped in and swam a few laps of the pool, but that would be fibbing! Bronte is one of the City Beaches on the south side of the Bridge. It would be my favourite of the southern beaches although still cannot complete with those of the North.
ITALIANO: Questa foto è stata scattata poco prima del tramonto a Bronte Beach. Potete vedere il Bronte Piscina di Roccia nel FG che guarda verso l'Oceano Pacifico. Anche se il tempo sta diventando sempre più freddo qui a Sydney (siamo ora in autunno), l'acqua era molto calore a 17C.
Mi piacerebbe dirti che ho saltato e nuotarono alcuni giri della piscina, ma che non sarebbe la verita! Bronte è una delle spiagge della città sul lato sud del ponte. Sarebbe la mia preferita spiagge del sud, anche se ancora non può completare con quelle del Nord.

Finally got my e-mail alerts fixed! Yay! Had to perform magic tricks, but I have them the way I want 'em. Just in time to catch your latest, too.
This is a really nice foul weather shot, excellent exposure of the sky and clouds, good blurring of the water. I like the guard line around the edge of the pool, it helps to lead the eye across the frame.
How cold will it get in Sydney at the coldest? Still kind of freaks me out that it is cold and nasty somewhere while it is reaching the time where we have tornados and heat waves!
As they say, it's a topsy-turvey world!
Have a great Friday!

I like the nice colours of the sky and also the good sense of motion in the water. Just one think, 17C is cold for QLD standards!!! Well done.

Nice dark 'Moody Blues' capture of the Bronte Pool, ocean and clouds. I really like the tinge of redness caught in the fading sunset. The pool looks inviting -you should have pumped up and gone in for a dip :) I also strongly agree with Reed that the guard rail help to drag the eye around the frame. Nice work as usual. TFS.

Fair dinkum, I reckon you ought to give up shots with horizons in them, it must drive you nuts me always on about it.
Great shot, brilliant POV and composition, actually I'm moved enough to say, inspired.
Good judgement on exposure time, the water looks amazing, and that sky, superb.
BelCan75 (2201) 2009-05-28 21:07
This is a fantastic shot! I love the exposure and the light in this photo. Great sky and beautiful colours in the distance. Excellent work!

Hi Lisa, The dark colours work well to add mood to the scene. choice of exposure was good, giving just the right amount of blur in the water. As for the horizon...
Enjoy your weekend.

une photo très expressive, un peit chef d'oeuvre de pose longue et de controle des lumières, une expo parfaite et la scène très bien choisie.
smarcell (19963) 2009-05-29 0:03
a very dramatic atmosphere ! I lke the blurred effect on the waves, and that little touch of pink at the horizon.
trekks (14348) 2009-05-29 0:05
Somehow phwall always digs into tilted horizon, even a little one :) but he is sober enough to detect it here.
I see you are getting good at long exposure work now, especially when it comes to rain or water. This one makes good sense to try 1s for the soft effect of water motion to the railing and rocks. I think it is a good choice you made on your setting.
I am happy to read that you jumped into the 17C water, but hopefully not with the camera :)
A great shot of scene that does not remind me of Sydney. It is borderless world.

There is a strong ambiance here with this special lightning. It is dreamlike with the blur put on the wave by the long time exposure and the clouds which seems not affected.
snunney (79973) 2009-05-29 4:35
A splendid composition with a wonderful atmosphere occasioned by that stormy looking sky. The long exposure has really paid off making for interesting contrasts in textures either side of the railing. A fine image, thanks for sharing.

questa foto mi ricorda qualcosa. Un momento triste della mia vita, ma a parte questo, l'immagine è eseguita molto bene.
Mi piace il ponte curvo a dare dinamicità alla scena.
Deve essere piacevole passeggiare a piedi nudi su di esso con l'acqua appena a coprirne il suolo.
Bella la risacca tra gli scogli, in quanto dona movimento alla scena.
Vicino Catania, più esattamente ai piedi del vulcano Etna, c'è un paesino di nome Bronte, molto noto per i pistacchi di eccellente qualità, con i quali si producono creme e dolci di vario tipo.
Kielia (22913) 2009-05-29 12:24
this is a very good composition with amazing colors! Great effect of the exposure with an almost frozen water. You give me an excellent idea of this exciting place when comparing this image with the other one from this place in your gallery. TFS!

Quite a dramatic picture here, gives the feeling the world gets flooded, and the long exposure effect adds well to this impression
Have a nice day JY

Hi Lisa, great point of view and definition. The overall dramatic background is really good. congrats, chau chau,
Clementi (52514) 2009-05-29 22:30
in questa foto hai creato una atmosfera unica, il tempo lungo fa sembrare l'acqua come un velo di seta, bellissimi i colori.
Cretense (68685) 2009-05-30 4:15

Ciao Lisa, fantastico cielo che minaccia tempesta, belle vista di mare, ottima esposizione, brava, ciao Silvio
lousat (72855) 2009-05-30 16:28
Ciao Lisa,l'effetto seta dell'acqua sul molo causato dal lungo tempo di esposizione ha fatto la differenza...complimenti,e' uno scatto magnifico e inquietante,i toni azzurri sono spettacolari! Buona Domenica,Luciano
AiresSantos (56155) 2009-06-01 3:07
Wonderful point of view, excellent tons and sharpness
I enjoy a lot how you framed it and the reflections in the water
TFS and have a nice week

Great atmosphere and composition in this one, Lisa.
Job well done.

You captured fantastic light in a really good composition. I am impressed by the colours of your photo, although it tilt a bit on the left , the whole composition is very pleasant.
really good one
Fellini (6405) 2009-06-16 0:25
the last session in your gallery i look to increase the ability of use of your camera in this situation of low light. Very good the effect of long exposition and the p.o.v. is fantastic! You have managed the lighting, contrast and sharp very well...my best compliments Lisa.
Have nice day.
sandpiper (6788) 2009-07-30 22:56
Great shot of this famous pool. Excellent composition with teh storm clouds providing a dark atmosphere over this peaceful icon.
CLODO (29316) 2009-08-09 3:35
Hot water at 17°C? You're joking! My wife usually go swimming when it's going to rain, not to get wet under the storm!
Nice colour (photographically speaking), manuy cold hues, and sea movement.
magalik (6101) 2011-01-31 11:21
Hai raggione, questo luogo è bellissimo. Non pensavo che era una piscina, immaginavo piuttosto un bacino, per pesci ad esempio. Fa della magia questa tecnica, rende i luoghi irreali trovo.
40 gradi...Mamma mia... Buon coraggio. Troppo al mio gusto ma qui, fa -1° e non è al mio gusto non più ! :)
Buona giornata !
calikar (8) 2012-06-04 15:26
This is beautiful. I love the colors and everything about it!
