One of several water taxis working in the harbour. Pepole hire these to go out to some of the small islands in the middle of the harbour, or just take a cruise around.
This is in Farm Cove with the Botanical Gardens in the background.
The Royal Botanic Gardens is a place of natural beauty, where people come for peace, relaxation, education, and to learn more about plants and horticulture. The surrounding parkland of the Domain is a place for sport, entertainment and recreation.

I did not know they existed in Sydney. Are they cost effective? How do they compare to the ferry?
It is a nice sharp shot.

The diagonal line of the shore is an asset to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the water taxi. The trees are framing well the scenery. The intensity of the light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

I like the saturated colours you've captured, the blue, the greens and of course the yellow water taxi.
A quality image, very well done.
