  Skyline - by Jim Zuckerman  
 
Brisbane is a very beautiful city, and it's photogenic from many points of view. A classic shot of it is with the Story Bridge in the foreground and the skyline stretching across your entire view. At twilight, especially, it's a fantastic shot.

Directions The vantage point from which I took the attached photo was from Bowen Terrace. You can take a taxi here or you can walk, as I did. Brisbane is such a beautiful city that it's a pleasure to walk. Bowen Terrace is elevated so you get a commanding view.
Season Any time
Time of day Sunrise is great, but I prefer twilight
Recommended SubjectsThe skyline and moving traffic on the bridge.
GearYou will need a wide-angle lens and a tripod for a twilight shot. You might find tight compositions with a telephoto, but the best photo is with a wide angle.
Other Nearby ResourcesThe nearby Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary (http://www.koala.net/index.htm) has wonderful opportunities for photographing koalas up close as well as many other species of Australian wildlife. I took many excellent photos here.

Green Tip #102

Ride Your Bike To Work.

Use your muscles to power you along your commute instead of gas. Bicycling is amazing in that it's one of the few machines where you can be both the passenger and the engine. If you go this route, be safe and wear bright clothing. Also, use flashing lights especially if you might find yourself in low-light. When I ride to work, I use a flashing tail light on my bike at all times and wear a bright yellow windbreaker to both keep me warm and make it easier for drivers to notice me. And I'll tell you, riding to work has another benefit, in addition to being good to Planet Earth: I get to cruise right on by all those traffic jams.
