Sydney Opera House at Dusk

Recently I dropped a friend off in the city. As this was in the evening, soon after I dropped my friend off I took a few photos, such as this one.

Other than capturing the building, I wasn’t aiming for anything in particular. I think that worked out for the better.

Perhaps this wasn’t long enough of an exposure, but I do like how the water is affected, as well as the opera house’s appearance.

This is my submission into the one hundred-and-fifty-fifth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

The theme for this one is “On the Water“.

The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:

Week 1 – Patti

Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 3 – Amy

Week 4 – Tina

For July each challenge is guest-curated, and each theme has been announced.
John Steiner of Journeys With Johnbo is curating this one.
The rest for July are as follows:

July 10th – Anne Sandler of Slow Shutter Speed: “Black and White”

July 17th – Rusha Sams of Oh The Places We See: “Getting Away”

July 24th – Beth Smith of Wandering Dawgs: “Along Back Country Roads”

July 31st – Ana Campo of Anvica’s Gallery: “Postcards”

I recommend participating in the challenges. They’re enjoyable and allow room for interpretation of the theme without straying too far. If you don’t participate, then I recommend that you at least check out what others of the Lens-Artists community are submitting.

I hope you enjoy.

  1. Thank you for joining in this week. Some day I hope to see that iconic building in real life. It is still on my bucket list for when the world gets closer to the “old normal.”

    I honestly think it is one of the most beautiful buildings every built SH, and you’ve captured it well. I thought I’d be disappointed when I saw it in person but it was even prettier than I expected. I’m sorry in hindsight that I didn’t tour the interior.

    I love this photo. The white sails of the opera house and the deep grey clouds. I think I have seen several of your photos of this amazing building that have brought it to me in a new light. My husband and I went to see an opera when we were in Sydney on our Australian adventure 30 years ago. I cannot remember what the opera was . That file has gone but having a drink in the interval and looking out to the water …that is still clear in my mind!


  4. An iconic building and I like the way it stands out against the background of the sky and foreground of the water.
