Another great work Ian. Can you get to the top of Sydney tower? I like the way that it is framed in red, altogether making a lovely photo. Gold star! Amelia

You are resonating with me, Amelia, for I love this one too. And thanks for the award. As for the tower, yes you can. There are two revolving restaurants up there and a visitor viewing floor. If you into a more daring experience you can pay to do an external harnessed walk on the roof top, and be free of windows, but I doubt they will allow you to take your camera externally.

If you use my 'Sydney Tower' tag you will find some day and some night images taken from one of the tower restaurants.

Warm reards,

Dear GGR,

Both you and Amelia are encouraging me to have more nights out (with my camera)!

Thank you.

Your thoughts and evaluation are very much appreciated, in fact an honour, especially when you see it worthy of inclusion in your favourites. Arthur, I wanted to include and work with the red flowering tree for it is a tree that we associate with Christmas here - a time of abundant colour and life. So it makes a statement for me.

I wish for you a special Christmas.
