    Story Bridge Climb

    Hi all,

    A while ago I organised a photo climb on the story bridge, see the previous thread here, and my pics are here. Well it's on again, as long as we can get the numbers.

    Date: 11th June 2011 (Saturday)
    Time: 5:00 am (this is a winter dawn/sunrise opportunity)
    Cost: They are offering me a huge discount this time of only $99 instead of $130.

    They also haven't placed a minimum number of climbers limit on us this time, but would be great if we can have 12 people again. As it'll be a group booking again, I'll need your money before the climb, same as last time, contact me for bank details (still the same as last time, if you want to go again).

    I have organised with the guide there to make it a morning where it'll be just us, and they are allowing us to stay as long as we need as it is not a public day (meaning no public are allowed to climb).

    It'll probably be really cold as we start well before sunrise which is at 6:34am that morning, to allow us heaps of time to get to the right spots on the bridge for dawn. Unlike the sunset climb there will be heaps going on on both sides with the golden light on the buildings and the sunrise on the other.

    I've just been informed that's the same weekend as History Alive, but we should be able to get down in time to still make the HA opening. Gates open at 9:30am with Fort Lytton’s 64-pounders firing at 10am.

    This must be a sign. I went on the bridge climb tonight but the lightning storm stopped us from making it up there. We all had to reschedule for another time. So count me in !!!

    Hi Allan, just reconfirming here, Kerri and myself are definates for this adventure, looking forward to it.

    Thanks for organizing it .
    I have this silly idea, that I should actually go and take photos with all this photography gear I have already accumulated, before I collect any more!

    See some of my photos here.

    Sounds like a great opportunity Allan, put me down as a "definite maybe" will depend on work etc. When do we have to confirm 100%?

    Cheers

    Thanks Allan

    It seemed quite a few debated which lens to use on the last climb.
    I just wanted to hear some of the post climb thoughts on the lens used - UWA, general, telephoto???. (Considering peoples differing shooting styles and FF vs APS-C).

    That debate will continue till the end of time, however I found the 24-70 on the 5D2 to be satisfactory for 95% of shots. Would have loved a longer focal length on a few shots. But as most of the shots were cityscape shots a wide angle suits most.

    Hi Allan

    Put me down as a "reserve" as it seems you are already full.
    Msg me if any spots become available.
