Sydney Harbour 2014

Sydney Harbour was a busy, picturesque place to be at Easter 2014.  I’m told its the second largest natural harbour in the world but when googling it, they say Sydney Harbour is number one, so who am I to argue with Google?   The days were so warm and wonderful that we could not help but be on the harbour any chance we got.

There are just so many things to see on the harbour:  Sydney Opera House, Circular Quay, Darling Harbour, The Rocks, not to mention all the bays and a myriad of suburbs that dot the shoreline on both sides.

The only angle I didn’t get was from the North Shore close to the bridge but its always nice to leave something for the next visit….

On the bucket list is Sydney Harbour fireworks New Years Eve 2015, and although it will be expensive, we have almost narrowed down going to the small island in the middle of the harbour called Fort Denison (Pinchgut)  where a wonderful five courses of food are served all the while looking at the Bridge and the fireworks, drinking champagne (I’m not sure I could want for anything else in life!).  So fingers crossed for next years New Year Eve!

My favourite photo was taken at Fort Denison looking through the old wood pylons to the harbour bridge.  Can’t wait for my next visit!

  1. I love your photos! The one of Luna Park is my favorite. I also love the nighttime sky on Sydney Harbour photo; it’s lovely. Great info about the Harbour…I knew nothing before!!


  2. You’ve done an amazing job capturing those clouds! Nice.


  3. This is a wonderful set of images. I love seeing your photos as I’ve never been to Australia.

    There are two that particularly stand out for me. hard to choose a favorite between the first one (water and wood against the backdrop of the bridge) and the evening shot with clouds and bridge.

    Really nice stuff.


    • Thanks “Sue” means a lot. I’m a bit overwhelmed! I also love the wood pylons looking back to the Harbour Bridge and I think the one you mean with the wonderfully patterned clouds, they were magic! I love to travel overseas and take photos and have preferred that, but now slowly appreciating my country as well and want to share. You are too kind!


  4. Your photography is brilliant! (in the Canadian and British sense of the word). I am astounded at your ability to see things through such a unique view.


  5. These are stunning, Karen. I can’t believe you’re a hobby rather than a professional photographer. I especially love your sea pictures, here the first one in the gallery. 🙂


    • Thanks Mara I’m almost blushing! Thank you, it means a lot. I love the first one too, the one with the wood pylons with a view through to the harbour bridge?


      • Yes, yes, that one! I think it’s similar (or same?) to the one you have on your Flickr, where I was also glad to find you. Of course, it helps that you live in a photogenic country, but the compositions, the angles, etc. are unmistakably original and yours 🙂


      • They will be a bit repetitive to you as they are the Flickr ones. Australia is a lovely country that I hadn’t truly appreciated until recently. I appreciate your compliment, I didn’t realise I was original, I thought I was just stepping in everyone else’s footsteps. It means a lot Mara, thank you!


  6. These photos are incredible! I especially love the first one, the strong and rigerous movement of the water has been captured so well, amazing!
