Barangaroo, New Year's Eve celebrations

This view of the New Year's Eve fireworks over the Sydney Harbour Bridge was from Pyrmont Point Park. The first shot is quite clear but unfortunately we were downwind of the fireworks display, so the smoke made it diffucult to view the rest of the show over the bridge. Luckily we could still see the other fireworks launched from barges along Sydney Harbour.

  9. That first shot is super.
    I'm rather glad we don't have fireworks here for New Year's Eve, however. I'm usually asleep before midnight. What my mother would have called "an old fussbudget" I guess.
    All the best for 2011.

  15. «Louis» just realized that you Australian bloggers were the largest contributors to this week's "Sunday Bridges". He really appreciates the participation from "Down Under"!

    M. Scélérat, éditeur, à «Louis»: It's a matter of perspective, you stupid vache! From where the Australians are standing, it's YOU that is "down under". They're the ones right-side up!

    «Louis» à M. Scélérat, éditeur: You are going to find yourself "down under", wherever that may be when I send you on a little trip with my horns!

    M. Scélérat, éditeur: (GULP!)
