Vivid Opera House .. with cruise boat

Michael Matthews

Sydney, Australia

Artist's Description

These great colours were appearing on the Opera House just as a cruise boat was passing between me & the great view.
I just managed to get the last of it as the cruise boat got to the edge of the frame.
I’ll have to get back again & take another shot without the obstructions.
In the meantime enjoy the colours.
Vivid Sydney 2011 kicked off on May 27 with a fascinating & colourful display of moving lights over the sails of the Opera House.
With art supplied by French collective Superbien, this years display is more dynamic & entertaining than the slowly changing displays from the past 2 years though a bit harder to photograph due to the mobile nature of the works.
As such what you see is quite different to what appears through the camera. The real thing is more entertaining I think.
There are 45 light installations at Circular Quay & the Rocks & the displays run until June 13.
This is Sydney, Australia.
Photographed with a Canon 400D.
