CDP Theme day.. my city's skyline..



The theme for City Daily Photographers for August is 'my city skyline'. One of the best views of the Perth skyline is from the south side looking over the Swan River. I took these shots yesterday evening around 5pm and by Perth standards it was bloomin' cold.. 12C :) I think Perth looks particularly lovely in the blue hour. If you pull the pics in you will see there are a few additions to the foreshore since I last snapped here.. the bridge and sculptures in Elizabeth Quay.


The sun going down in the west thew a warm glow over the buildings, making the Bell Tower (to the right of the shot look like a shard of light pointing skyward. Later in the week I'll show this same scene about an hour later.. Hope you had a wonderful weekend, take care and stay safe...

    1. I take it all back. You'd better keep your water if there's not enough rain.

  12. Nice skyline.
    I'll trade your 12 degrees for our succession of 36-38 degrees every day in July. August looks to be much the same. And it gets very humid here.

  14. 53% I feel your pain!
    Lovely shots over the water.
    Such a shame about the buildings, but the shots are very enjoyable.
    (I hate tall glass buildings, can you tell?)

  15. That is a very pretty skyline. 12 degrees C is rather cold I must admit. We are having 20C...
