Dawes Point, Sydney – SYD36

Dawes Point is located on the north-western edge of the Sydney central business district, at the southern end of Sydney Harbour Bridge, adjacent to The Rocks. At times Dawes Point has been considered to be part of The Rocks considering the rocks are located right behind it.

Dawes point is one of those areas that I never get tired of. There are so many angles to shoot the Opera House which is what makes this spot so attractive to many photographers. When you shoot the Opera House at this location you have many places to pitch your tripod and take the shot. I just love this area for a number of reasons, you feel safe, you have plenty of angles to shoot, you can be as creative as you like, it’s very peaceful at sunrise and it is magical watching the sun rise towards the east which brings in a new day. 

When I took this photo the sunrise was absolutely insane. I loved how these hand rails framed the scene, as they lead your eyes towards the Sydney Opera House.
