The Royal Botanic Gardens

Iconic Vistas at the Royal Botanical Gardens - Sydney, Australia
As a travel photographer I'm always looking for an interesting perspective even if the subject of the photo is an image that has become commonplace. Most landmarks become a popular image because they are indeed spectacular and worthy of their hype.

When we travel we are always looking for something "active" to do and ways to be outside. A day at The Royal Botanical Gardens in Sydney is a magnificent park to stroll around offering stellar vistas of some of Sydney's most iconic landmarks.

I had seen the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House before, but there was something magnificent about taking it in from a distance.

Sydney's Royal Botanic Gardens are just steps away from the bustle of the downtown core, and a place to escape for peaceful walks along leafy trails. Great views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, and adjacent to the spectacular Art Gallery of NSW. #afarexperiences
