Sydney Skies

A couple of months ago I flew to Sydney for my older brother's 50th birthday. I wasn't originally going due to finances but my cousin called a couple of days before and said she would pay half the cost of the flights and I was to stay with her and her husband.
Although rain had originally been forecast, we had beautiful clear skies. It was a wonderful weekend.

The view from my cousins apartment in Manly is stunning.

The day after my brother's 50th, I did a little exploring in the city. It was amazing to see the Overseas Cruise Ship Terminal right in Circular Quay. This wasn't the case when I last visited Sydney 10 years ago.


I enjoyed a quick early dinner in the outside dining area of The Pier One Sydney.

Having spent a week in Sydney a few months ago it was good to re-visit the sights. It's also interesting to see a different approach to photography.

The Harbour is such a wonderful scenic area. beautiful white cloud shapes and a dazzling blue between creates some extra magic.
