Golden dawn

Getting there

Williamstown is about a 15 minute drive from the Melbourne CBD. One of the best photography locations is the view of the city from the Ferguson Street Pier.

Best times for photography

The composition faces east so shooting into the morning sunrise will give you the best photographs. The above image is a panorama of 5 photos taken with a long lens. Be careful if you shoot from the end of the pier as people walking along will create movement in the pier and that will ruin any long exposure. I find the best view is from the start of the pier towards the shoreline.
