In his nineties, artist Lloyd Rees wrote about his beloved Sydney Harbour. One Monday I went down and sat on the seat by the wharf à The light came through so wonderfully. I got up to the ferry and got an outer seat at the back. I looked out upon it all and suddenly I thought: I don't want to go to Heaven because it can't be as beautiful as this.

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.
