A morning stroll through the gardens

Went for an early morning stroll in the Royal Botannic Gardens.

I took some panos of the City & Harbour which I'll post before I get onto the photos. They were taken at Mrs Macquaries Point.





& here are the other shots





An excited angel (so excited he forgot to put on his gown ) checks out the latest tower to rise over the gardens





Check out the spire they added to the Tropical Gardens complex


I was being sarcastic. It's really the spire of 126 Phillip St













The skyline's newest addition - 126 Phillip St. Looks stunning from out there!!!



The Harbour Bridge & Opera House from Mrs Macquaries Point

Fabulous angles Fabian. !!!!!. The Botanic Gardens were once known as 'the farm that failed'. And so, from the convict dumping ground grew the most beautiful city on the planet!

Beautiful pictures. How cool to have a Botanic Gardens right in the middle of the city, on prime real estate. I love the 126 Phillip tower, looks way better than it did in the renderings I saw. I want one for my city!

I've never been to Canada. I hope to go there someday. I think you mistook me for another person.

i think everyone should just call 126 phillip st- DEUTSCHE BANK. thats what everyone will start calling it. so much better then a street address.right.
its emblazened across the top!

great collection fab.
how you stole my "foster child" angel statue view! i think ive posted that about half a dozen times.
yes the bot bot gardens are a wonderful place. really beautiful part of sydney. i walk through each week. it gets your head away from hectic CBD for a few minutes.
