Brisbane’s Story Bridge lights change colour

Brisbane’s Story Bridge, illuminated

As a Brisbane photographer, there are certain landmarks that never get old at night. Brisbane’s Story Bridge is one of those landmarks, and has recently undergone an upgrade to use LED lights as opposed to those old ones that can blow really easily. LED also allows for easy colour changing, and one of the first colour changes was done to support the Queensland Firebirds in the 2013 netball grand final. Pictorials below!

    Great shots, Matt. Especially the top one. Purple bridge seems like something Prince would do.

    1. Matt Warrell says:

      Ha, that’s exactly what I thought, Tom!

  2. I love the way it illuminates the entire city! And purple really is such a unique color…I’ve never seen that done anywhere else! Good pick, Brisbane!

    Yeah. I’m thinking that this bridge would be right at home in Minneapolis, MN, with Prince. 😀

    Great shots Matt – the purple and white is actually for Bravehearts White Balloon Day – a signature event held annually during Child Protection Week to raise awareness about child sexual assault and help empower survivors to break their silence. This year our goal is to raise $500,000 to help make Australia the safest place in the world to raise a child. All funds raised will go toward the development and delivery of Bravehearts’ education, counselling, training and advocacy programs.

      Hi Jason, thanks for your comment! These shots were taken back when the Firebirds were in the netball grand final, however if the purple lights for Bravehearts White Balloon Day look anything like this, I’m sure it will be amazing!
