Anyone travelling by train from the Blue Mountains:

There's trackwork between Lithgow and Blacktown. There's buses running down to blacktown. Suburban trains are running between Penrith and blacktown, I think.

Ok ...

So that we're all on the same page for this:

This Saturday, May 17, about 4:30pm.

Mrs MacQuarie's Chair, starting from around 4:30 pm so that we can hopefully catch the sunset behind the sailboat and coathanger. From there, wandering around through Macquarie St, into the city, and then down to Darling Harbour. Bring your tripods.

Do I have that correct?

Parking: there should be some on-street metered parking at Mrs Mac's Chair. Bring coinage for the meters. There's flat daily rate weekend parking in a couple of parking stations on Sussex St adjacent to Darling Harbour.

As a start here is whereis map for Circular Quay - clicke the Secure P icon on the bottom toolbar for some carparks. There is also the Opera House Car Park. Not sure about street parking.

Howdy do di,
I too am interested in coming along. Having shot mostly solo, i would definitely like to see what tips and
techniques others have up there sleeves in capturing night landscape shots. As forum newbie would be
a good opportunity to meet like minded veterans.
Any objections?

Re: Anyone interested in a night shoot? Updated - 17th May

Postby Steffen on Wed May 14, 2008 4:51 pm

Just a few remarks/questions:

Is the walk around Farm Cove (from Opera House to Mrs Mac's Chair) open again? They had some construction going on a couple of months ago.

If so, I might leave the car at the SOH car park, or at Alfred Street (which should have flat fee on a Sat night), and walk to the meeting point.

Where are we going from there? The walk around Farm Cove is most likely closed after sunset, and we'd have to trek along the street. Walking back from wherever we are at the end of the meet to Mrs Mac's Chair could be a bit daunting maybe? Should we perhaps meet and park someplace more central, like around Circular Queue? Sunset is at 5pm, we could make our way from there to the lookout within half an hour I guess. If we were to have some dinner afterwards it would be nice to have the cars a bit more close by.

Call me chicken, but I know I won't be parking my car along the street to Mrs Mac's Chair. There are break-ins on that stretch almost every night...

Cheers
Steffen.

Flat fee on Alfred St?

Alfred St is closed to public on-street parking these days. SOH carpark will work, or perhaps somewhere on or between Bridge and/or Hunter might work for on street metered parking. Expect $2.20 an hour I think; not sure about time limitations, which might change at the 18th hour.

Where are we going from there? The walk around Farm Cove is most likely closed after sunset,


Yep. Please check this post.

I think that getting from the Quay at 4:30 to Mrs Mac's, in time for sunset, would be ambitious. For the Quay, I'd be suggesting a 4pm start for the walk through the Bot; meet there prior to 4 for those of a like mind to you.

If we were to have some dinner afterwards it would be nice to have the cars a bit more close by.


Yep; dinner location hasn't been decided, but I'm thinking that a decent pub shouldn't be too difficult to locate.

Call me chicken, [/quiote]

Is the duck off again? :)

Are there ducks in the Bot?

but I know I won't be parking my car along the street to Mrs Mac's Chair. There are break-ins on that stretch almost every night...


Likewise George St, Pitt St, Lower Kent St ... Parking lots are always fair game.

And my car's been broken into outside my home. Sadly, this is something we have to deal with.

Eating somewhere-ish afterwards, I suspect, but if weather starts to play a hand, who knows what might happen.

I'd suggest late-lunching.

What we need is somewhere to grab a sourdough bowl of chowder. But that somewhere shouldn't be a Doyle's.

Any thoughts on best way back from Darling Harbour to the car if parked at/near mrs macs? A straight walk would take maybe 25 mins or more, and after a few hours of wandering then a few drinks might be long walk!

Exactly.

My current line of thinking is to either leave the car in Darling Harbour, and then cab it around to Mrs Mac's, or just drive from point A to point B, as noted in Dave's (Dviv's) post. For street parking, that would be problematic, but there's a couple of carparks in the area that should be workable and inexpensive. (Yes, I'm getting old, and according to some establishments in the US, I am officially a senior!)

Dinner ... As we're going to be in the Darling Harbour/Chinatown precinct, I'm thinking in terms of upstairs at Market City. Inexpensive, lots of room for us, and lots of choice.

Being a Saturday night, Darling Harbour's eateries will be both crowded, and expensive.

The Lord Nelson will be problematic unless we stay at the northern end of town, but one would need to park in that vicinity in the first instance, but that presents another issue: most on-street parking there would be for a four hour metered maximum period. That could well apply at Mrs Mac's too, but if you're there with your vehicle, you can at least manage the early part of the evening, and time-shift the starting point of that four hour period. Moving one's vehicle into the Rocks after about 6 on a Saturday night? Do you feel lucky, punk?

Rob,

It'll be great to catch up with you.

This is looking like a great evening, with a massive turnout. I've not checked numbers, but I'm guessing >20, which is awesome.

Unfortunately, i won't be able to share dinner with you guys as i had other plans booked ahead.
However, for those that are getting in earlier, don't forget about the World Photo Press down at the
state library, which isn't too far of a walk from Ms Mac chair.
See you there (im the guy with the bright yellow green shoes)

Sorry I didn't make it guys. I have a good excuse. :P

Went out to Manly earlier, planning on heading back over to mrs Mac's Chair afterwards, but I met up with a lovely young lady in Manly and was faced with a choice to leave her and meet up with you, or spend some more time with her.

And well, it's hard to beat time with a lovely young lady...

Good choice Tiberius! :)
We had fun, but your instinct was probably best...how'd it go?

Clearly, Geoff, it didn't go as well as it could have! He's back posting on here and it's only just after 10! ;) ;) ;)

I, too, was unable to make this one - will be looking forward to hearing some stories and seeing some pics - looks like a great turnout :)

it went pretty good. She was taking photos for a TAFE assignment, but she was just starting out. I gave her some pointers and we went for a walk and got some great photos.

And yes, I was back around 10, but she had a party with her friends to go to. I did get her email though, so we'll be keeping in touch. BTW, what time did you guys get to Darling Harbour? I headed over there afterwards, but I couldn't find you guys....

Good stuff Tiberius! :)

Darling Harbour? We didn't get there at all. :) It ended at City Extra at Circular Quay.

There's the problem! No wonder I couldn't find you!

And I got off the ferry at Circular Quay! ARGH! I probably walked right past you!

Anyway, here's some of the pics I took during my day out...

Sorry I didn't make it to this one as well, I hope my message made it through!

I am still trying to find myself a place to live and ended up having to deal with house hunting duties on the upper North Shore right up until 5:30 and after that it was just all too hard! Sounds like it was a good night though.
