Of this photograph, Moore wrote: Perhaps any city is worth photographing on a calm winter morning. Yet few can be as benign and beautiful as Sydney with its harbour setting. The city possesses a special ambience in the early hours of a winter day. The harbour is a mirror and a soft, atmospheric mist separates the structural planes of the built environment.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
