Dusk at Sydney Harbour

By Skye24Blue
Been living in Sydney for nearly 2 decades now but only managed to visit (with the Camera Club) the very end of the strip leading to the Sydney Botanic Gardens, called Mrs Macquarie's Chair, today. This area is very popular for viewing the New Year's Eve fireworks.

World Youth Day is on in 3 day's time, so most delegates are already in town. Let me know if any of your loved ones are around. Will meet with them and give them a warm Sydney welcome (freezing here, 4 C overnight and 16 C and windy through the day).

Have a lovely day! Mac Smile

I fell in love with this bridge when I was there and was lucky enough to hear Dame Joan Sutherland sing in the opera house. This is a magical view of this iconic place.

Great shot Mac, but it would work better for me if you could demolish the top few floors of the skyscraper so there's some clearance between it and the bridge Wink
