Photograph - Photography
The beautiful St. Mary�s Cathedral viewed in the background behind the popular and well know fountain in Hyde Park, Sydney. I captured this image on �Australia Day� � 26th January, 2012.
Brief info on St. Mary�s Cathedral from Wikipedia:
The Metropolitan Cathedral of St Mary is the cathedral church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney and the seat of the Archbishop of Sydney, currently Cardinal George Pell. The cathedral is dedicated to "Mary, Help of Christians", Patron of Australia. St Mary�s holds the title and dignity of a minor basilica, bestowed upon it by Pope Pius XI in 1930.
St Mary's is the largest church in Australia, though not the tallest. It is located on College Street in the heart of the City of Sydney where, despite the high rise development of the Sydney central business district (CBD), its imposing structure and twin spires make it a landmark from every direction. In 2008, St Mary's Cathedral became the focus of World Youth Day 2008 and was visited by Pope Benedict XVI.
