Ten Friday Photos from Sydney, Australia

Sydney ranks on pretty much everybody’s Top Five Cities list and you can see why in this quick little photo tour.

Here is sunset from Watson’s Bay, just outside town. There’s an old hotel there that has now labeled itself “boutique.” It’s not very big and it gets loud at night on weekends, but you can’t beat the fine view from the back terrace.

This could be my single favorite HDR. Since the Sydney, Australia area is on Australia’s east coast it catches the sun’s first light each day. Here, waves crash against the rocks across the harbor from downtown, just south of Manly Beach, below the bedroom community of Watson’s Bay. Click it to enlarge.
