Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb


The Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb just celebrated it’s 10th birthday and over 2 million walkers. It is a fantastic and memorable experience for anyone who lives or visits Sydney and the historic info they tell you along the way is brilliant. The walk goes for about three hours from start to finish and it is over before you know it.

In this shot (click image to view large) you can clearly see three groups of climbers enjoying the experience. I did the walk back in 2000 with my sister.

The high afternoon cloud in the background made for a perfect contrast against the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

This shot when viewed at actual pixels has such detail that you can make out the sex and facial characteristics of the climbers.
