Circular Quay, ferry

A view of the Circular Quay ferry wharves yesterday, out towards the Sydney Opera House. The Golden Grove is a First Fleet Class ferry acquired in 1986 and is part of the fleet that operates on the Inner Harbour. It was named Golden Grove, after the one of eleven ships of the First Fleet that sailed to Australia in 1787. This view is from the viewing platform beside the Cahill Expressway, above Circular Quay railway station.

  1. Not sure where the reflection is, but it's a classic Sydney view.

  2. Steffe, I thought the light reflected off the Opera House sails and the white reflected in the water qualified.

  3. I do love the reflection of the Opera House on the water, Jim! Such a terrific capture and great perspective as always! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I don't think it's a classic Sydney shot, Jim. I love the fact that the ferry is so brightly coloured and attractive it makes the Opera House play second fiddle.
    Take that, Opera House! LOL
    Seriously, it's a gorgeous shot of the ferry with the Opera House in the background.

  5. It is a classic Sydney scene, Jim, and very well done. I'm going to count those as reflections.
