North Bondi, Sydney

Photograph by Rune Svendsen

A helicopter ride over Sydney gave Rune Svendsen—who submitted this photo to the 2015 Traveler Photo Contest—the perfect view of cliffside homes in North Bondi, a suburb of Sydney. "It's amazing how the houses almost fall off the cliffs, with the splashing waves just beneath," Svendsen says. "The coastal walks along the eastern suburb beaches like Coogee, Clovelly, and Bondi offer an exciting landscape and this picture captures some of it from above. Strong colors, waves, cliffs, and beaches. This is Australia."
