    Was this taken this morning Liz?? It was pretty awesome to look at (wish now I had gotten up to capture it also)…
    This is a magical shot :o)

  • Hi Sharon, yes this was this morning at about 6.55am – amazing colours. By 7.30 it had completely clouded over and start to drizzle, you wouldn’t even have known if you woke up then that there had been such a stunning sunrise, just 30 mins earlier.

    At last, a different view of the Opera House. Really nice, Liz.

  • Thanks Roger, the colours in the sky were breath-takingly beautiful. Its the kind of colours and light that makes me want to get up so early on a Saturday morning, even though I’m not a “morning” person!
