Circular Quay at night


Tonight I went out for drinks in The Rocks area with some friends. Afterwards I walked back to Circular Quay to catch a train home. This is taken from the railway platform, and it's a view that no matter how long I live in Sydney I never tire of. It is gobsmackingly beautiful, day or night. The only pity is that they built the apartment block known as "The Toaster", which partially obscures the view of the Opera House (to the right). "The Toaster" looks like a serrated edged comb, highlighted by the white light of the Opera House.

  7. I agree. I think that's why the harbour area is one of the 7 wonders of the modern world, and long may it be so.
