Lovely to see Les and yourself back home - I hope that you both had a wonderful holiday seeing your daughter - and, of course, Lisa and Kevin.
Now, Lisa just sent me a picture of you and Les with her by Sydney's harbour but the weather that day looked awfully dull and miserable. The day you took this one, however, has been gloriously bright and sunny and you have captured this water fountain in some lovely warm and bright light.
Fine straightforward composition, lovely light, vibrant colours, stunning sharpness and spot-on exposure. An interesting note too.
