A warm summers evening in Sydney with ferries & cruise boats stream across the most beautiful harbour in the world.
Coloured lights reflect on the water & private boats sway in a harbour inlet at North Sydney.

This is Sydney, Australia with the Sydney Harbour Bridge & Sydney Opera House in the backyard with the city skyline on the right.
Luna Park on the north harbour features on the left hand side.

Photographed with a Canon 400D.

Focus on New South Wales, Sept 2011.

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.
