Scenes in Sydney

I just returned from a fantastic holiday in Sydney. It is such a wonderful city - beautiful, glitzy, sophisticated, full of life and at the same time very relaxing!

Here are some of my pictures taken during my stay in early Autumn (very pleasant weather indeed).

Starting off with the skyline - taken from the ferry, which I used nearly everyday for a week. Probably one of the most beautiful sights on earth!

As you exit Circular Quay - you are greeted with this huge mix of classical and modern architecture.

The light rail. Sydney has quite a bit of rail (underground in the city) and when I was there a new line had just opened and they're building a metro system now.
