Sydney, our first encounter with the world down under. So far away but still we felt so at home. The nature, the closeness to the water, the design, the lifestyle. All felt a bit like in Sweden but with a much warmer, sunnier and relaxed twist. Sydney turned out to be such photogenic city and we could hardly put our camera down. So this time I will show you my favorite Sydney pictures and the best photography spots in Sydney! Hope you enjoy!
1. The Opera House – A Must for Your Sydney Pictures
When looking for the best photography spots in Sydney and the best Sydney Instagram spots, the first that comes to your mind is probably the Opera House. It is for sure a must for your collection of Sydney Pictures.
Located just next to the busy Circular Quays there are many ways and angels to capture this beauty. My favorite Sydney Opera House photo in my Sydney pictures collection was from the Harbor Bridge side but you will also get some beautiful shots from the stairs in front. Just wake up early as this is one of the most popular Sydney tourist attraction.
If you like Fredrik are into night photography, bring your tripod and capture this masterpiece also by night!
