The Gap at Twilight, Watsons Bay, Sydney, NSW, Australia

The Gap is a spectacular ocean cliff at Watsons Bay, near South Head, Sydney, Australia. The Gap is famous not so much for its natural scenic beauty, but for more bizarre reasons: a reported 20-50 people suicide each year by leaping from The Gaps on to the rocks below.

If you happen to be there in early the morning take some bird food from a pet shop with you. You can see flocks of crested pigeons, sulphur-crested cockatoos, lorikeets and laughing kookaburras there. Birds there are already get used to get food from people. –°ockatoos are even begging for food and trying to eat your camera and tripod.:)Quite a lot of fun. (Yeah, I know kookaburras are meat-eaters and won’t eat seeds, but anyway…)

    Stunning view! I wish we could have something similar here in Melb (relatively close to the city ;-), surely there are plenty of cool places on Great Ocean Road)

    The colors are just brilliant in this one, they really makes this scene come alive!
