Like moths to a flame, boats flock around the dazzling harbor of Sydney, Australia. Taken by world-renowned panoramic photographer James Blakeway, the photo features the harbor’s centerpiece, the Sydney Opera House. The result of an international design contest held in 1956, the opera house took 17 years to complete and is considered a modern architectural masterpiece.
