    I like this!!!

  • Thanks for the comment. Not often you can get so much history into one picture – and I didn’t even mention the converted warehouse at the foot of the bridge.

    Congratulations on your feature.

  • Thanks Matt. I didn’t have much time to compose this on a moving ferry!

    This photo would be perfect for the $20 challenge in ‘Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House’

    Good luck!

  • Thanks for the suggestion.

  • Thanks so much. I guess you’re not seeing much blue sky in London right now – according to our so-called newspaper London was maximum 0ºC, minimum -2º, with rain yesterday!
