The beams of light coming from the center are actually projector beams, lighting up the Opera House with moving patterns and artistic designs (not seen). Amazingly bright lights to be working from across the harbor! There are also some buildings on the left that are lit up different colors and patterns during the festival. More photos coming showing the Opera house and Australian Customs Building.
