  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 #101

Alternative Fuel Car

The best thing you can do, as soon as you can afford it, is replace your gas-guzzling car with an electric, hybrid, or alternative fuel car. If you're finances won't allow you to do this, there is still you can do to help. First, make sure your car has been recently tuned-up. Keep your tires properly inflated. Don't run your car when it isn't necessary. If your exhaust stinks to high heaven and knocks out the people following you, then it's time to get a tune-up or upgrade to a low-emissions vehicle. You can do a great deal for planet Earth by using your car intelligently.
