Beautiful night shot of Opera House, I like the effect of water, it is calm and smooth.

Dear AlirezA,.

It is a great icon, in a beautiful location. The night was still, and the harbour was only disturbed by the passing ferries. Thanks for your visit and for commenting.

Best wishes,

So great, Ian, as usual for you ))) I Love Opera House. By the way, there is a similar wonder, but not so famous: Lotus Temple

Ian Stehbens on January 23, 2011

And I appreciate your encouragement, Miroslav.

The Lotus Temple is very much a development of the Opera House architecture. I wonder how much was learnt by the engineers for this temple from the engineering done for SOH. There was so much ground-breaking work done there by the engineers and contractors once Utzon's architectural concept was accepted.

Thanks again.

Greetings from Brisbane.
