You Never Know What Will Appear At Dawn
This sequence of images was shot exactly a fortnight ago, on Friday 26 June. They are part of a series that was shot between 7.30am and 7.34 am, looking out over the city towards the blue silhouette of the Dandenong Ranges that girdle the city's south-east.
I shot a few frames, using a 300mm lens and took this random shot of cranes against the pre-dawn sky. I was just putting the lens cap on and preparing to walk away when I noticed another facet emerging on the scene.
Hot-air balloons are a great Melbourne staple, taking passengers up on clear skies on summer flights as well as on frosty winter mornings.
I waited there, because I could see the balloons would pass over the MCG, the giant bowl of a stadium called the Melbourne Cricket Ground, that is such a part of the city's proud sporting heritage.
