Oriental Bay at Night

Whilst seeing and photographing the Carter Fountain most days. I’ve not published a photograph of the fountain before. This is Oriental Bay, one of my favourite parts of Wellington. The fountain isn’t on all the time, only a few hours a day weather permitting. It cycles through a rainbow of colours. I tried to capture the various colours but found the green to be my favourite. It contrasts well with the blues and oranges of the rest of the scene. Making the fountain stand out as the focal point of the image. I have captured the fountain zoomed in with the city skyline behind but I wanted to include more of the bay. Seeing this line of rocks I moved around the include them. These rocks in the foreground lead your eye towards the fountain. This is a 20 second long exposure with my new Sony full frame digital camera.
