Sydney & Surrounds
Sydney is one of those cities that as soon as you get a harbour, you know that you are in an international city. Like many other iconic cities (Paris - Stockholm etc.), photographic subjects are everywhere.
The Sydney Harbour Bridge affirms that feeling immediately. It is one of the world's most recognised icons. Whether it is bathed in fireworks on New Year's Eve or just providing a backdrop for the Harbour itself or the magnificent Sydney Opera House, it is a unique sight.
The Opera House is also one of those surreal experiences when you first lay your eyes on it.
The Opera House is also one of those surreal experiences when you first lay your eyes on it. Pictures and film can portray its unique beauty, but until you have seen it in real life, it is merely an icon in the context of the Bridge and Sydney Harbour. One cannot help but be photographically inspired by the sights around the Harbour. Not far away are probably the world's most iconic beaches at Bondi.
The iconic destination is never deserted from the beautiful expanse of the sandy beach; even in winter, the 'Icebergs' brave the cold for their ritual swims.
The coastal walk from Bondi Beach to Tamarama (and beyond) fills the visitor with a sense that this is a special place. The path winds along the shore, revealing a new vista at every turn.
