Sydney Webcam...a different photo of Sydney every day

Centrepoint Tower, Sydney, Sunday 13.35 June 12th 2005.

Centrepoint Tower is Australia's tallest building (305 metres) and was at one stage the tallest in the southern hemisphere. It dominates the city skyline. As I take all photos on this site in landscape format I thought how best to photograph this building that cries out for a vertical treatment. I settled on this odd angle to show as much of the shaft as possible. If you look carefully you will see the tiny form of three riggers working on the support cables. Yesterday was completely overcast and today there is not a cloud in the sky.
