Sydney Harbour, Sydney, NSW
'There's nothing like viewing the silhouette of the Sydney Opera House as it emerges from the harbour at daybreak.'
Globetrotting Japanese businessman Hitoshi loves exploring World Heritage sites and “makes it a point of principle to view and photograph the sunrise” wherever he visits. Hitoshi has captured countless spectacular sunrises on his international trips, which he does regularly for business and occasionally for leisure. Yet this seasoned traveller was still swept away by Australia, where he saw sunrise over World Heritage-listed icons such as Sydney Harbour and Uluru.
"I crossed Sydney Harbour early in the morning to view the Opera House, the city's symbol, from the north shore. As the sky brightened, the stunning shape of the building emerged and reflected on the surface of the harbour," Hitoshi said.
