Iconic Reflection

This the world famous Sydney Opera House. I was fortunate enough to stay about 2 blocks from this iconic architectural marvel that is located in the Circular Quay along the Sydney Harbor. Though I was only in Sydney for 4 days, I saw some of the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets I've ever witnessed. I pinched myself several times as this one unfolded :)

 

Though there were thousands of people visiting this place every single day, I was really lucky to enjoy this brisk winter sunrise in complete solitude. Just me, a few seagulls, and the occasional ferry boat passing through (luckily not at the time of this shot). I honestly couldn't get enough of Opera House and shot it several times at all different times of day. There is fantastic light show that they put on each evening where they display a kaleidoscope of colors along the sides of the arched walls of the structure.

 

This area is known as the Circular Quay and is home to an amazing network of passenger ferries and tour busses that can take you virtually anywhere in Sydney. And believe me, there is lots to see in this truly beautiful city which I hope to share more of in the coming weeks.

 

Have great week everyone and if I haven't gotten around to your stream just yet, I should be there shortly. Cheers mates!
