The Sydney Opera House

One of Australia’s most iconic landmarks, the Sydney Opera House, has fascinated me for many years.  And when I finally saw it right in front of my eyes back in 2011, it was the culmination of a dream. Going back to Sydney five years later, I was no less awed by its magnificence.

This post is of the Opera House through my eyes.

On a perfectly sunny day, the view of the harbour from the Opera House is absolutely brilliant.
