Australia Day on Sydney Harbour by 

This scene was captured in Sydney on Australia Day, 26 January 2011.

The famous ferrython was underway and approaching the finishing line – the Harbour Bridge. Ferries and other specator craft can be seen on the right, streaming down the harbour towards the Bridge.

Australian flags are flying high upon the Bridge. Helicopters are hovering in the sky, capturing the winning moment.

Another Sydney ferry (not in the race) has many spectators aboard, taking in the sights and sounds.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.

    A wonderful and well detailed image Michael – from the huge span of the bridge to the tiny helicopter flying overhead.
    I love the gorgeous colours in this!!

  • Thanks for the great comment Sharon. Of course, the photo doesn’t pick up all of the sights and sounds that were happening. It was a fantastic atmosphere on the harbour.
