Such an amazing building. Great shots!

Maybe one of the most photographed and recognizable buildings in the world. Love your night shot of it. It gives it such an abstract look and almost looks monochrome.

As an Aussie, I've seen the Opera House many times but it still takes my breath away! Especially these great shots!!

Andrea said...

Very beautiful photos, I've seen in some blogs that they put different lights on the Opera house and made it so dramatic. I will get you envious this time, because aside from touring the area i had the chance to watch an evening of opera inside the Opera House. They will always show you the toilet bowl for the queen!
