Harbour Lights 2

By Skye24Blue
Twilight at the Lower North Shore side of Sydney Harbour earlier tonight!

In Sydney, we sometimes forget it's winter during the day as it gets mild to warm only to get a harsh reminder around 5pm when temps dip. It was so windy along the walkways and wharf tonight, most World Youth Day pilgrims and other visitors in Milsons Point took shelter in pubs and the nearby Luna Park. For some time the Harbour was all mine!


Hope you're all enjoying your day. Mac Smile

Gosh, this is good, Mac, love the way you've isolated the bridge from the scene, the lovely colours on the water and the unobtrusive inclusion of the fencing in the foreground.

Only on TV, Rock, far too many pilgrims (400,000+) have nullified my efforts. I have some images to post in the coming days, though.
Cheers, Mac

Absolutely superb Mac, and your very best in my opinion; I could sit and look at this for ages.
I love the POV and angle on the bridge and the composition filling almost the entire frame with interest. Excellent light on the city and opera house and topped off by the colours, particularly the RGB flowing bands in the water
