Yet another Opera House and Bridge Shot

Of the various Harbour Bridge and Opera House photos I’ve taken over the years this is my current favorite.

Opera House in front of the Bridge

Opera House in front of the Bridge

I always like this angle, the way the bridge kinda frames the opera house.

City, Opera House and Bridge Pano

A panorama version of the last couple of photos so you can see how it all fits together.

Incidentally we live over to the left where the buildings go behind the tree.

Bridge Lights

Bridge Lights

I love the visual effect of colored lights reflecting on water.

This is the Sydney Harbor bridge from the Opera House podium. The bright colorful bit center right is Luna Park.

Harbor Bridge from Cockatoo Island

Harbor Bridge from Cockatoo Island

The harbor bridge is one of the most prominent landmarks in Sydney.

While not as iconic as the opera house, it is substantially larger and subsequently visible from a much larger area. Indeed when it was built it was the tallest structure in the city.

So it’s not at all surprising that I seem to be collecting photos of it from every angle.

I particularly like this shot not so much because of the bridge but because of another Sydney landmark / eyesore.

The blues point tower is notable for it’s standing out nature, not only is it an¬†unattractive¬†building, but it stands alone, far taller than anything around it and obscuring a wide range of otherwise good views of the bridge.

However from this particular angle it almost blends in, falling as it does right in front of the left tower of the bridge.
