About

 

Brisbane City, QLD, Australia.

 

I woke early. I needed an early start at work, and as always I had my camera with me. After leaving the train and seeing the fog over the city, I made the call to shoot the fog instead of getting to work early (I was not late, because I'm always early).

 

I take my gear to work with me every day, why... so that I don't miss these moments. "Never pass up the opportunity to shoot fog"

 

Funny thing was, after shooting this, I saw a shot very similar on the local news website ... if only ;)

 

Enjoy.

About Brisbane

 

Brisbane is the capital of the Australian state of Queensland and is the largest city in that state. The statistical division of Brisbane has a population estimated at 2 million by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, and with its LGA registering a bit over a million, it is the third most populous city in Australia.

 

The city is situated on the Brisbane River on a low-lying floodplain between Moreton Bay and the Great Dividing Range in southeastern Queensland. The local indigenous people knew the area as Mian-jin, meaning 'place shaped as a spike'. Brisbane is named after the river on which it sits which, in turn, was named after Sir Thomas Brisbane, the Governor of New South Wales from 1821 to 1825. Brisbane's demonym is a Brisbanite. The first European settlement in Queensland was a penal colony at Redcliffe, 28 kilometres north of the Brisbane central business district, in 1824. That settlement was soon abandoned and moved to North Quay in 1825. Free settlers were permitted from 1842. Brisbane was chosen as the capital when Queensland was proclaimed a separate colony from New South Wales in 1859. Brisbane also borders the Moreton Bay, Ipswich, Somerset, Logan and the Redland Areas.
