Taken during some exceptionally foggy days in Brisbane.
I drove from the Gold Coast to Mt Coot-tha in Brisbane 3 days in a row. Mt Coot-tha, with an elevation of 220 metres, offers spectacular views of the city from a distance that requires a telephoto lens for the best point of view.
I got this shot on the first day and apart from some sleep deprivation and fatigue over the subsequent days, I was glad I did it.
Another great example of how to make your luck.
Robert Zappia prepared, anticipated and persisted. He was where he needed to be, with the right gear at the right time so that when the sun peeped over the cloud tops as the airliner was silhouetted and the buildings poked above the fog, all he had left to do was trigger the shutter at just the right moment.
And he did.
