It's been extremely cold of late. But thankfully, recently at least, the skies have been quite clear. Circular Quay is a great bustling place to be on days like this. And a few days ago it was graced with the presence of a massive cruise liner, the Sun Princess.
These behemoths dock there from time to time. It always amazes me how they even manage to navigate safely into position. It's a very tight fit. This becomes crystal clear if you cross the Sydney Harbour Bridge and look down at one of these massive boats. The deck is almost at the level of the bridge itself!
Unfortunately I didn't get a shot of the Sun Princess from this angle. However I did manage to get it fairly close up, from ground level.
Look at the boat that is moving along in its shadow, with the Opera House in the background. That's actually quite a big boat in its own right; it's certainly bigger than the iconic green and yellow ferries that cross the Sydney Harbour every hour of the day.
Look at the passengers on the deck and you'll see what I mean. But next to the Sun Princess it looks very small indeed.
