The Sydney Opera House and the Harbor Bridge at Sunset

The Sydney Opera House and the Harbor Bridge at Sunset

One of the classical views of the Sydney Opera House and Harbor Bridge. Wanted to make this shot for a long time but always had some other business or shot from other spots. Finally last Sunday I was able to do that. While I was shooting I was bitten by mosquitoes – my hands were itching for two days. The spot was selected by mosquitoes as “the place to stay” – they were swarming right at the best place for shooting.:-)

    Great shot Ilya. This spot is probably the best advantage point around the city to shoot both icons. I have been meaning to shoot this spot with my digital outfit. Soon I hope.

    Thank you very much, Matt! It’s an honour to hear that from you!
