Christmas Beneath the Dome by Michael John

The Queen Victoria Building, or QVB, is a late nineteenth century building in the central business district of Sydney, Australia.

The dominant feature is the mighty centre dome, which during the Christmas period is occupied by a giant Christmas tree – the largest Swarovski Christmas tree in the world. This magnificent 24-metre Christmas tree is adorned with thousands of Swarovski crystals and 60,000 lights.

Canon 400D, as is.

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.
