A New Year!


Being so close to the barge meant that you had to look way up to see the upper explosions.



Even my poor super-wide-angle lens began to run out of reach!



The conditions changed fast, and I was getting cold, which makes for "shakey" and burnt images. I had taken over 200 pictures by this point, and most were no good...



So I was happy that some turned out ok!



The show was almost over, it was just rapid fire bright explosions! Camera at 1/40 sec now...



The crowd cheered as the last of the explosions rocked the walkway...



I had dressed warm enough under my jacket, but just bluejeans wasn't enough for my legs. I should have worn my skiing base layer...



Robson street isn't usually this busy after midnight on a holiday Monday! I was walking fast to get warmed up...



Hmm, I think this car needs to move soon. How many can you collect before they tow?
