Sydney, looking West

Here's a picture I made in Sydney last week..... looking west over the Tasman Sea from the walk from South Head Lighthouse to the Gap. has this to say about the walk...."Perhaps the most magnificent harbourside walk is one that starts at The Gap, a spectacular ocean cliff at Watsons Bay, near South Head. It winds its way down through Vaucluse, meanders through Watsons Bay and takes you all the way up to the lighthouse at South Head. The Gap is famous not so much for its natural scenic beauty, but for more bizarre reasons: a reported 20-30 people suicide each year by leaping from The Gaps on to the rocks below. Dozens slip from the rocks, which makes it a dangerous place to be if you don't keep to the paths and stay behind the barriers.
