Campbells Cove, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Vivid Sydney

This artwork near the water's edge of Campbells Cove at The Rocks, with a spectacular backdrop of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, was installed for the Vivid Sydney festival. "Ember", created by Joe Snell was a 30 metre long glowing installation that pulsates between red and orange. It evokes the beauty of dying embers and the danger in the potential of an 'ember attack' that is synonymous with Australian bush fires. It tantalises with its warm ambience on a winter's night, drawing you closer to touch the glowing coals. It also doubled up as a bench for the audience of the Fire Dance performance every hour.

  5. Ann, I wasn't sure how to photograph this one but then I had a brain flash when I decided to include the bridge in the shot. Just a shame that the orange didn't photograph as well as it looked.

  7. Great night shots, especially the second with the reflections of the railing on the wet pavement as well.
    The railing itself is a great foreground feature for the Coathanger.

    Thanks for alerting me to this meme.

  9. Thanks, Arija. The wet ground provided better reflections. I think the rain that night enhanced the shots, although it had me on the run for cover under awnings during downpours.
