View from the zoo

This was taken from the northern shore of the harbour, on the ocean side of the bridge. Not my normal haunt. I was outside the bottom gate of the zoo, on Athol Wharf Road in the suburb of Mosman. The zoo is on very steep ground with a comanding view of the city which I have shown you before.

On Saturday mornings - early - I take a bus (two buses actually) across to Mosman Junction for a two hour group French lesson. This week, instead of simply taking the bus back home again, I decided to walk a couple of kms (2.7 kms according to Google) down past the zoo to the ferry wharf, and come back that way.

There is much to see from this different vantage point: bridge, harbor, opera house, clear waters... lovely!

Lovely. Haven't been over there in years. Want to take the camera to the zoo one of these days.

Adore the perspective of this shot - wild beach, greenery, sea ... all leading the eye to the bridge and the opera house. And finished by an interesting sky. How clever of you.

My favourite Sydney view. I must admit I always like the cliched shots of giraffes with the OP and SHB in background.

Classic 'layering' in this picture Julie, the eye get drawn in from the foreground, step by step till you reach the skyline in the far background.

Gosh Sydney Harbour is magnificent. Great photo. Hope you enjoyed the 2.7k walk with those stunning views.

Super shot, Julie.
Just catching up on a few special blogs while between planes. Have been up almost 24 hours and still several hours until we're in our own house.
Will start posting Russia pix in a day or so, when I wake up.
Luv, K

Ah that view. What I love about this shot is the "path" into the view with its rocky border by the sea.
