Skywatch - Good vibrations


This weekend will see 38,000 people jam into the Brasilian Fields and Parade Ground of Centennial Park for the annual Good Vibrations festival, over half-a-dozen stages. This tent, by the look of the clouds, protects the appropriately named "Laundry" stage.

What a wonderful section you chose to photograph! It sounds like a fun festival. This photo reminds me of here, actually... we're always partying despite the rain!

Luis Gomez said...

Beautiful shot! Love it.

Lois said...

It's a beautiful shot Julie! I like how the light is shining on the side of the tent.

It's the angle I suppose but the tent appears to be flying up in the clouds. Sounds like a fun festival.

Great thunderheads - I hope the music could be heard above the thunder. Great photo.

I love the shiny tent and the low cloud above - opens like a mouth to the blue sky beyond.

Vicki said...

Great photo. Very filmic.

A beautiful shot.

Bill said...

Great photo. I can almost hear the thunder in those dark clods. If you go there, Julie, make sure you'll take your brollie.

Great composition - the photo has a very medieval/fantasy feel about it.

Lene said...

Cool! The top of the tent and the flags looks great against the clody sky :) Great captured!

Now isn't that just a great skywatch .. the fun foreground, the lovely clouds in the middle and the stormy bit at the top ... who would have thought so much of a story could be told in a sky image.

I feel as if I've just come upon Camelot. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful shot, Julie.

Julie, regarding churches vs pubs, I think it's a toss up. There are certainly more pubs as you get closer to the city but maybe more churches as you venture further out in the suburbs.

Thanks, Jim. I am going to ask another acquaintance who photographs both churches AND pubs. I will let you know what he reckons.

Unique, beautiful, and dramatic. Those are the characteristics of this photo. A very well composed and beautiful shot! I like the use of the roof of the marquee as a subject in this photo.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Those dark clouds look ominous!

Jilly said...

Oh what a shot! The circus tent in Monte Carlo looks just like this without the flags - and how the flags 'make' it but of course the shot if made by that glorious sky and your capture of shadow and light. Gorgeous!

ladyfi said...
