Number 7 in the series of spectacular colour projections onto the Opera House during the Vivid Sydney Festival May/June 2013.

A 5 second exposure produced an image that is a little different to the one we saw with our eyes.

Brilliance thanks to Australian creative innovators, The Spinifex Group.

Photographed with a Canon 400D at Sydney, Australia.

Country born & bred but now located in Sydney, Australia.

I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature & in particular Australian native flowers & landscapes. I also love colour & anything unusual.
The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.
