up early for nothing
Well, in Sydney, I can spend a great preparation and effort for nothing. The phrase “much ado about nothing” comes to my mind.
Anyhow, here's the story. Yesterday I got up early and decided to take the sunrise photo. Except Laurent did not guide me the exact location of the spot. I wanted McMahons Point (Blues Point). Took me a while to find the spot on GPS, and unfortunately, I was on the wrong lane in Motorway, and took the wrong exit after Habour Bridge. That means I missed out the exact moment of Sunrise.
This morning, I got up even earlier (at 5.05am to be exact), and decided to take the same shot again.
I did not repeat yesterday's mistake, I used the correct exit after Sydney Harbour Bridge. Except, this morning was heavy fog. How much fog? I could hear the radio saying that due to heavy fog, incoming flights to Sydney airport were diverted to Brisbane or Adelaide.
What does heavy fog mean? No sunrise photo. Silly me.
Anyhow, this is my foggy (sans-sunrise) Habour Bridge (and Opera House which was disappeared in the fog) photo.
Perhaps I can get up early again tomorrow, and remember to check if it's foggy or not first.
