Botanic Gardens, Conservatorium Gate

A brilliant blue winter's sky above the Conservatorium Gate of the Royal Botanic Gardens, close to Macquarie Street and beside the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. The surrounding bushes in bloom are adding a bit of colour at this time of year.

  1. That entrance almost has an 'eastern' feel to it Jim, with the peaks on the gates and behind. Looks so well maintained.

  2. The gates look beautifully designed and fit perfectly into the site. Do you have a date for those gates?

  6. Keep forgetting it's winter where you are...amazingly blue skies! Wish we had skies like that more often in The Netherlands...

    Have a good weekend!

  10. The sprinkles of bright red flowers and green leaves against the clear blue sky are indeed very eye-catching.

  13. I love the detail on these gates. I saw something equally complex out at Callan Park yesterday. I think a book could be worked up on the use of wrought iron in our city.
