Australia Day 2008 – Fireworks

 on 


This years fireworks at the Australia Day were one of the most spectacular and colourful I have ever seen. For many this is the pinnacle and reason why they come in their thousands to Sydney’s Darling Harbour. Locals and tourists alike stood there in awe admiring the kaleidoscope of the best pyrotechnic displays in the world. The cacophony of sound and light was simply fantastic.

I have captured a lot of scenes big and small from this year’s celebrations. Visit my Australia Day photographic gallery here to see the remaining photographs.

Australia Day 2007 – Fireworks

Fireworks are a traditional form of celebrating big events in Australia and this year was no different. From spectacular extravaganza of Sydney fireworks to small shows in country towns the sky was set to multicolour kaleidoscopes to celebrate Australia Day.

I was under the impression the attendances at the celebrations were bigger then ever and the national pride just a bit stronger than usual. There are many facts that influenced this with the single most prominent the failed attempt to ban Australian flag from the Big Day Out concert.
