Opera House and Harbour Bridge

The Opera House and Harbour Bridge are the two best recognised and most photographed landmarks in Sydney. I captured them here last week as I was walking along the foreshore of Sydney Harbour beside the Royal Botanic Gardens, near Mrs Macquaries Point. It was a beautiful sunny day with only a hint of clouds in the sky.

  2. That's a million dollar view and a million dollar photo of it! Maybe the City of Sydney should pay you for it, non?

  8. Ah! The beautiful city. Bill's nickname for the opera house is "Sonya's workshop", as that is where our daughter, Sonya, works as a production manager. (kidding we're not proud)

  16. What a coincidence. I was going to post almost the same picture but in black and white, taken in the seventies during our farewell trip around town. It is such a great shot to capture these two Sydney landmarks like this.

  23. Wonderful iconic image--would that we all had "infrastructure" like these.

    Dallas is supposed to get a couple of Calatrava bridges one of these years, and just got a new opera house, but I doubt if they'll ever symbolize this area the way yours do Sydney.

  26. Perfect shot this one, the harbour bridge and the opera house... I had my wedding pics taken there but shame it was night time.... you should try take some shots from Kirribilli in one of the waterfront there, great spot

  27. This shot makes me smile :) It captures the single view that says "Australia" on a global level. Too cool! All of your shots make me feel like I can take a trip to sydney without even having to get on a plane. Oh, and thanks for checking out my blog btw!
