Hillside and Night Sky_Elwood

An iconic image of a hillside structure that overlooks Elwood Beach_Melbourne_photographed at nighttime with a 30 second exposure. Canon 5D camera and Canon 85mm f1.2 L series lens. Exposure Details: 30 seconds @ 5.6 ISO 400.

Elwood is a pretty inner city suburb on Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay. This image was made in the early evening on a hillside overlooking the beach. I would have preferred that the structure had not been roped off, but its position on the hillside makes for quite an iconic scene.

Overhead artificial lighting illuminated the structure and hillside. The low light levels required a long exposure that allowed me to record the movement of the clouds across the night sky.

There’s something special about a night sky. It’s a timeless scene. I hope this image evokes the beauty of nature and our relationship with it.
