Owl Sculpture_Melbourne

A surreal image of the Melbourne City Skyline with the icon Owl Sculpture in the foreground

Canon 5D camera and Canon 85mm f1.2 L series lens. Exposure Details: 2 seconds @ f11 ISO 400.

Here’s a beautiful, if not slightly ominous, thing. This huge statue of an owl dominates the Melbourne skyline from the city’s southwestern edge. I was able to photograph the owl and surrounding buildings in the early evening as a storm approached from the northeast.

I’d been fascinated by this structure since the first time I saw it. Choosing to photograph it under a night sky only enhanced its surreal qualities.

It’s always a good idea having a camera with you whenever you’re out and about.  And your own city can reveal many hidden gems, some which will photograph best under evening light.
