A Visit To Australia’s Iconic Opera House

My first glimpse of the Sydney Opera House was from the window of our Qantas plane as it descended toward Kingsford Smith Airport. I remember feeling a jolt of excitement. Australia had been at the top of my travel ‘to-do’ list for a long time, and seeing the Opera House let me know that after 20 hours of flying, we were finally here! For me, the Sydney Opera House has always been one of the most iconic symbols of Australia, and to see it first hand would allow me to cross another thing off my bucket list. We took a guided tour of the Opera House on our first day in Sydney. Walking around inside and seeing it up close allows you to truly appreciate what an engineering marvel this structure is. As a photographer it’s even better, as the Opera House does not have a “bad side”, and offers many different angles to shoot some incredible architectural images. Here are a few that I captured of this beautiful landmark.  Click on the links for more information about the Sydney Opera House.
