For the second year running, Sydney has flicked the lights on the Vivid Sydney 2010 event. Featuring a festival of light, music, art and ideas, the lighting of the Sydney Opera House sails features spectacular illuminations and projections on one of Sydney’s most popular landmarks.

Crowds flocked around the Opera House to enjoy the show while photography enthusiasts dotted the harbour with their tripods and hefty camera equipment for a chance to capture the light and movement on the magnificent sails.

  1. Wow!  When we were in Sydney, they had put the pictures of the Sydney footie team on the Harbour Bridge and we thought that was amazing.  This is even better.  What a spectacular idea.

    • Akila, I wish you could have seen it last year! The projections were much more colourful. It may be our icon in Sydney, but it always leaves me staring at it in awe.
