    There is a universal appeal, at least for me, seeing the beautiful reflection of a city on the water. This is especially eye-catching – lovely colors and beautiful composition:>) Congratulations on your feature in A Love of Boats – FAVE!

  • Thank you very much for your well considered comment. I really love getting feedback like that (who wouldn’t!)

    Sydney is a beautiful city and this scene made getting up at 4.55am to catch a train from King’s Cross to this superb outlook very much well worth it!

    Thanks for the fave too!
