Happy Australia Day to all my Aussie friends. My first experience with this day was in Whistler back in the early 1990's. It was a little nuts and I'm sure its only increased 10 times over. I love that beautiful country and miss my friends there. The shots below were from my trip there in September 2011. I had spent the day walking around Sydney by myself and just as I was about to head back to Manly the setting sun hit the opera house. With the dramatic dark skies it made for some beautiful photos.
