The Postcard Scene


It is very rare for me to photograph the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House, as it has all been done before, and the compositional possibilities have been exhausted; but I was shooting the Sydney skyline from Mrs Macquarie's Point, and decided to rotate the camera a little to the right, and capture the postcard scene.

So, here are Sydney's postcard icons: the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House together.

Some nice cloud coverage made the sky more interesting, and the rich blues of twilight allow these Sydney icons to shine in their glory.
