Sydney Harbour Illuminated-

Sydney Vivid Festival 2014

If you were ever in any doubt that Sydney possesses the world’s most beautiful natural harbour, this year’s Vivid light festival would have reassured you. Now the biggest festival in Australia, Vivid encompasses music performance and an ideas forum, but the real drawcard for the visitors in their millions is the projected lightshow. Designed and choreagraphed by artists and technical wizards, the lights are breathtakingly projected onto the city’s most prominent landmarks such as the Sydney Opera House, Customs House, and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. I rarely need an excuse to go down to Sydney Harbour for a gander so I thought I’d get on down and put my Canon EOS 6D through its paces.

People queued up to program their own colours to display on the bridge. In between programs, the bridge would flick back to its original look. In the background you can see the illuminated Opera House.
