A slumbering collosus


Atop Bald Rock, looking so'east across White Bay and Glebe Island, over Johnson's Bay and beyond Pyrmont: skyscraper canyons are warmed by the first rays of a new day. Spliced between Bradfield's iconic arch - off stage left - and the swaying humm of the ode to the ANZACs - off stage right - the bitter draughts of an exiting winter swirl around the footings of this slumbering collosus.

You are awake before most of your city. Few interior lights are on across the skyline. But what a blushing light you've captured in the foreground. What a moment.

This is wonderful! The water is like a mirror, so clear & still.

The light in this shot is just so appealing, I don't think I've ever seen the harbour so lovely and still (probably because I don't get up at dawn)

That's a beautiful shot Julie! The water looks like glass and the reflections are lovely.

Great skyline, I like how it reflect in the water, slightly blurred.

It looks wonderfully higgledy-piggledy, like a city should do.
