Sydney Harbour Bridge

 A recent cloudy Autumn sky above the Sydney Harbour Bridge with the Sydney Opera House and the city skyline in the background. I took this photo from Milsons Point, in front of Luna Park, after we took my mum out for lunch for Mothers Day.

  9. Ann, I took this shot between the entrance of Luna Park and Milsons Point ferry wharf. I used my new compact Canon camera which has a 28mm lens, much wider than the old camera I was using.

  36. So cool to see the sky over that bridge - just watched the movie "Man on Wire" about the man who walked between the twin towers in NYC, and there was a short film on the DVD about his walk on "your" bridge too. So crazy! Happy SWF.

  43. Frisky Librarian,
    That's the Australian flag, flapping in the breeze, that you can see at the top of the bridge. If you click on the picture you should be able to see an larger view.
