Photographer's Note

Brisbane is a moderate sized city of 2 million people on the eastern coastline of Australia, and it the largest city in the state of Queensland. A subtropical climate blesses the city with plenty of sunshine for most of the year which means you will see plenty of people out and about exercising or relaxing by the river. The Brisbane River, which looks particularly brown in this photo due to torrential rain during the previous week, cuts the city in half to ‘north’ and ‘south’ Brisbane. As a result many grand river crossings link the two sides, now including a long road tunnel running under a section of the river seen in my previous post. The river floods periodically, the last time being in 1974 which inundated large portions of the city. At present, with full water storage and an above average rain season ahead, some people are predicting this may occur again soon.
The main reason for taking this photo was to test out the new camera and also see how the Hoya polarizing lens handled the mid-day sun. This arrangement was about ½ the deepest saturation effect the polarizer was capable of it seems, and I am quite happy with the result.
