Congratulations to Kobus Yssel from Southern Suburbs Camera Club!

He is our October winner with the image "Joburg Colours"

2018 10 Kobus Yssel Southern Suburbs Camera Club Joburg colours

I was fortunate to be invited to join a group outing to the Johannesburg Council Chambers in Braamfontein organised by Fazel Raymond.

It was a particularly cold and windy late August evening. I had my doubts about standing on top of a building in windy conditions like that but ended up going anyway.

The wind proved to be so bad a fellow photographer literally looked away for a second and almost had her gear blown off the roof by the wind. Fortunately,
quick reactions from her husband saved the day and the gear. Needless to say, the conditions were very challenging, especially with long exposure.

The image was taken with a Canon 5D mk3 with 17mm-40mm Canon lens.
Shutter speed: 15sec
Aperture: f/11
ISO: 100
