Above Brooklyn, Brooklyn, NSW
This is the ‘Brooklyn classic landscape photography shot’ I have had in mind for years. And to put it into perspective I have already got this shot but I just took it on an iPhone, not my Big Camera. To put it into even more perspective, it’s about a 90 minute walk from Brooklyn, and about 200 metres of elevation uphill to get to this spot. Are you with me?
So I finally got the shot, as a good mate asked if I fancied doing the Cowan to Brooklyn section of the Great North Walk one weekend. That’s a 13 kilometre walk, around 700 metres of elevation, and quite a difficult and rocky track. I took a look at the weather forecast and luckily we had blue skies to start with. More on that later. I packed the camera. One lens and no tripod, for weight. Plenty of water and electrolyte drink and food. So we walked and walked, after a 7:30 AM start, down past Jerusalem Bay, back up to the main ridge and then down and up again. We eventually arrived at the main lookout with a sense of elation. And tiredness! I had two shots in mind, one was a straight capture, the other was a panorama.
This is the straight capture.
