VIEW FROM A BRIDGE

For this week’s photo challenge, ‘atop’, I am submitting this view from the Pylon on Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Almost as high as the icon, itself, the journey inside the pylon gives you pictorial history, a video if you time it right and magnificent views of the Opera House, the city and, of course, the bridge itself. If you enlarge the photo, you can even see the group of Bridge climbers who have reached the flag.

For someone like me, who doesn’t like the breezy heights sought by others (no metaphor intended), this is a secure, safe and refreshing way to get the views and marvel at the structure.

More on the Bridge in another blog.

Travel Safe. Take water, although a fountain is available in the pylon, and hold your hat when you get to the top.

    1. That is the view of the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Australia. You can see parts of Sydney (the city) looking towards Milsons Point and Lavender Bay.
