Bells in the grey sky

The Federation Bells were commissioned to celebrate Australia’s Centenary of Federation in 2001. The 39 computer-controlled bells range in size from a small handbell to a bell that stands 1.8m high and weighs 3.5 tonnes. The bells ring at intervals throughout the day and located in Birrarung Marr Park.

I love the sound of bells, but I've only seen and heard them as church bells. This is the most unique array of bells that I have ever seen. I like it.
