The most famous landmark in Australia has to be Sydney Harbour, featuring the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. Sydney is named after Lord Sydney who was the British home secretary when Captain Arthur Philip and the First Fleet arrived in 1788. At the time it was described as the finest harbour in the world. I think it would be fair to say, that, that statement still applies today. It is still quite breathtaking to stand in front of the Opera House and take in the view. I never get used to it. The angles and texture of the Opera House sails, create wonderful tricks on the appearance and form, especially when the sun streams through on a cloudy day. This photo was taken on a balmy summer evening just as the light was fading. The iconic landmarks are not dominating this photo, but instead the rich blues and moody atmosphere create a sense of calm. It was taken at Macquaries Point and one of my first sequence of photos, using long exposure. For me this photograph is really all about the colour.
