Darling Harbour, Cockle Bay

A seagull takes in the views at Cockle Bay at Darling Harbour including Pyrmont Bridge. This swing bridge carries the elevated monorail track which mains stationary, even when the bridge swings open for large boats to pass, so that the monorails can continue to cross without interruption.
