If you have ever visited Brisbane or perhaps lived in Brisbane you would've noticed this iconic landmark which looks over the Brisbane River towards the Brisbane CBD. It's a popular spot and subject to photograph for landscape photographers for obvious reasons.
Slowing down your shutter speed to capture the blured motion of the wheel is a fun and exciting way to capture the wheel. I took it a step further and photographed Fireworks exploding behind it with a long focal length during RiverFire.
The idea and concept came during the moment. I saw the fireworks exploding and I wasn't close enough to the river to get a clear shot of the fireworks with the city in the background. So, I took out my long 100-400mm lens and started to capture a unique perspective, an abstract photograph the reminded me of a sci-fi film, planets in the solar system and even decided to capture what I beleive would mimic the rings of Saturn with asteroids exploding near by.
Often taking a step back to look at the bigger picture can bring a new and unique look to an often overly photographed location. I hope this strange, weird and wacky interpretation of the Brisbane Wheel brings your mind to a new place, a place of wonder and imagination where there are no bounds except your own creativity.
