I used to live across the habour from the opera house and this is making home sick :(

A seven minute ferry ride across the habour each morning was my commute…..

Beautiful, simply put. The depth of the blue is so incredibly deep. Did you take this photo?

Well you obviously had better weather when you visited Sydney than I did 9 years ago. For me there was wind, rain and I can remember a fairly large building was also on fire somwhere in Sydney. Bit sketchy I know but was almost 10 years ago, now. After I went to Sydney, I travelled to Cairns which is a wonderful place, and since I live in backwards Norfolk, being in the tropics and visiting the Great Barrier Reef was unbeliable, I shall have to dig out the photographs.

Are you adjusting the levels on these images? I typically do this to dramatize my images, but I hear some photographers can extract deep color out of nowhere.

I was in Western Australia in Feb/March and passed on a trip to Sydney because I was just to damn chilled out.

Your photo’s of the opera house have got me hitting myself very hard! Great pictures, what kind of camera were you using?

I was staring out of the bus window this morning, travelling from Bondi Beach into work, and the sky was the same shade as in these photos. It’s one of those stunning Sydney winter days today - 21 degrees celsius and the whales are putting on a show for their and our amusement. Come back to visit someday!

You’ve a hard life Sara. I’m sure we’re all very jealous. I know I am.
