  4. The last one on my right blows my mind, how the lighting people do it. But I like the blue best.

    Auckland sky tower also uses different colours.

  22. Ann, I was lucky that the two nights that I went out, the weather was quite mild and I was able to take lots of snaps. It would have been a different story if it had been as cold as it is at the moment.
