My Sydney Opera House
















Between yesterday's photo and today's, there is no more than a rotation of the feet - I merely turned around.
On board the cruise ship I was referring to yesterday, had you taken a cabin on the port side, you would have had views to the Sydney Harbour Bridge; had you been given a cabin on the starboard side, you would now be seeing this... provided you'd woken up before dawn of course. I hope many passengers on board the QE2 bring themselves to it.
I'm not on an expensive cruise, just standing on the quay, but here and now I am treating myself to one of the most inspiring and magnificent sights in the world. I'm happy to share.

That area of Sydney has got to be one of the most picturesque city scapes in the world. Breathtaking, (especially since you got up so early for them.)

Thank you for kind comment on my sketchbook space.
Colour will be dramatically changes in evening. Great catch on this photo and so the yesterday’s one.

Not afraid of postcards anymore apparently: 3 on a row, I call it addiction!... Just kidding, it's worth it. Great shot and I like the seagull peacefully crossing the field.

Felicia said...

Thanks for getting up so early to share this fantastic photo!

Nathalie said...

Yes bv, beauty is addictive. But tomorrow's post will see me moving away from that area, I swear.

With the outline - birds and sense of warmth from the sky - yopuo've captures a warm Australia. Excellent

Wonderful photo! That's the one they never catch for the tourist photos. Amazing, so organic, like it rose from the sea.
