I took this photo on the last night of Sydney Vivid Festival. We were pleasantly surprised the city with cold winds and fog during our last night of the Vivid photo walk. Fog, cold wind gave the city winter chill and we’re all voted “YES, LET’s do it. That’s the way a ha~ a ha~” and decided to walk across the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the fog. The haze was so cloudy that the light projection couldn’t penetrate to the Opera House sails instead creating Sydney’s own southern lights effect as the beams lit up the fog floating above the harbour. We actually tought it looked really cool like this, mysterious and different. Sydney Harbour Bridge went almost invisible as it hide under a blanket of fog.

Arnold Chan is a Sydney based vivid photographer specializing in event, zoology, cityscape and long exposure night photography. He started experimenting with photography as a hobby because he loves nature and landscape photography. His aim is to capture the nature of the wilderness and landscape. And also enjoy the wild beauty of nature at the same time. As he continued to develop his photography and he moved from Landscapes and Seascapes into long exposure photography which inevitably led to night photography. The learning curve was challenging and there didn’t seem to be a lot of organized knowledge to accelerate his journey..so he embarked on his own journey of trial and error. Now he think he has reached a level where he’s confident in the technical aspect if his photography beginning to become more creative with it and think to continue this and always find time for photography is his photography goal at the moment. So we’ll see what else life brings his way.
