Pyrmont Bridge, lamp

Looking up at the streaks of clouds in an otherwise blue sky, the lamp on the western pylon of Pyrmont Bridge seems to dwarf the giant flag pole in Cockle Bay and Sydney Tower in the distance, from this angle.

  2. Hello, I love your photo of yet another Sydney landmark. A lovely sky watch photo.
    I also commented on your outdoor post. I am still visiting the OD posts.
    Have a happy day.

  3. A great image. The lamp looks a bit out of proportions with the massive base, but it is original in shape.

  4. What an interesting structure, Jim. I like the angle you captured it with. And what's not to like about a blue sky like that?

  24. Kay, it's not a gas lamp now bit it may have been originally. A lot of the magnificent gas lamps that were retained around the city were converted to electricity.

  25. Angles do make a difference when judging heights. And the light pole, flag pole and tower make for a great sky watch!
