Sydney New Years Fireworks 09/10

I ended up going to Vaucluse and using the Voigtlander 180/4 to shoot back down at the harbour bridge.. Some decent shots, though I need a more stable tripod, a good number damaged by shake..

I saw a live feed over on Euronews. Splendid display of fireworks.

Happy New Year to all Aussies!

I like the last shot. Would look nice with a more panoramic crop.

Wow images up already for the fireworks.
I am unluckily at work tonight.

But what was braodcast on TV was pretty decent ... shame about the amount of smoke from it all that hung around ... there needed to be a bit of a breeze to rid the area of smoke.

There was also a lot of ver low cloud cover shootinng through nd as I was so far back that didn't really help..

But it was still a good angle and interesting night.. road closures and illegal fireworks everywhere..
