Hello Sydney! The Opera house from the Harbor bridge side

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.
