Port Botany is a deepwater seaport located in Botany Bay in Sydney, Australia. The port is dominated by trade in containerised manufactured products, and to a lesser extent, bulk liquid imports including petroleum and natural gas. It is Australia's second-largest container port, and is administered by the Sydney Ports Corporation, a corporation owned by the Government of New South Wales.

Here are two views of the port taken from a plane, one from above and another from one of the runways of Mascot Airport, which projects into the sea across the port. The photos were taken on a recent trip to Sydney.

    Thank you for joining Water World Wednesday

  3. I was wondering from what vantage point you got the first photos. That is a very large port, impressive.


I love to hear from you, so please comment. I appreciate constructive criticism as it improves my skills as an amateur photographer.
