SOUTHBANK - VIEW TO THE WEST

Southbank in Melbourne has seen amazing development since the Crown Casino complex was opened in 1997. High rise apartment buildings and office blocks have sprouted like mushrooms and have changed the skyline of Melbourne's CBD dramatically. Construction is still continuing at a frenetic pace. This is a view from Southbank towards the West nearing sunset. The sky is quite interesting.

This is a post for the Skywatch Friday blog meme.

  2. I agree with you, Berit, these high-rises are not very nice at all. However, they do give a good view of the environs!
    All the best from Downunder and enjoy your weekend!

  6. The colors in this shot and the way they are reflecting off the buildings are awesome. They are so muted and pretty. Those few skyscrapers really do stand out. genie

  8. I love the golden yellow light in this picture and how it contrasts with the clouds and blue sky. Great shot, Nicholas!
    Tall buildings are not my favorites either...
