  1. It looks wonderful from all angles and in all weather. I like your use of the railing to frame the view.

  3. I think this is one of the few times I've seen gray, grumpy, but gorgeous skies in your always wonderful captures of the harbor! Fantastic! Hope you have a great weekend, Jim!

  4. It's good to see a bit of swell on the harbour - most photos show it on calm sparkly days.

  6. Bit of stormy weather at the moment, I am led to believe. Some of this wrought iron fencing is original. Hard to tell which bit. A firm near Sydney Park in Alexandria wroughts it for them.

  7. Julie, we've had a lot of stormy and overcast weather in the past month. They say we just had the wettest March on record.

  10. The water looks a little rough in your photo. Actually, so does the sky!

    The sky, whether deep blue or grey,
    Has stories to tell every day;
    So if the day’s clear,
    Be sure to draw near—
    The heavens know just what to say!

  14. I love the composition here - the opera house interestingly does not dominate the harbor the way
    it usually does when photographed!

  24. Stewart M, it's definitely the most identifiable Australian building in the world so it could also be one of the most identifiable buildings in the world.
