Reflection in the Opera House
An interesting reflection in the glass outside the Sydney Opera House. I had speculated that the point where the Opera house sits was man made - maybe made out of earth similar to how Montreal's Île Notre-Dame was created from the earth tunnelled during contruction of the Metro. But no. Bennelong Point is a natural point and long ago was visited by aboriginals in New South Wales. The point has been built up over years with shells - but in a natural manner. It was home to a fort before the Opera House.
Seeing the harbour near the Central Business District, it is hard to imagine Sydney before it became a metropolis. But a stroll (well, scramble) through Sydney Harbour National Park tells otherwise. Across the harbour you can experience the rocks and cliffs and heavy vegetation growing along the harbour.
But for now - just enjoy the reflection of one of the world's most iconic bridges in one of the world's most iconic structures!
