I'd join you if I were in Brisbane - I have this week off actually, and Sydney has been hot and hazy so far.
But saying that, I just came back from Sydney airport and I had one of those rare, rare days where I must have had magic hands, and the best luck. It was windy as anything - but the conditions were clear, and despite the wind, and the huge camera lens -just about every photo I took was perfect! I put that down to a fluke more than any good management by me..
I'll keep Brisbane in mind if/when I have some more leave coming up. I'm happy to share the knowledge I have.
