New Years Eve 2012 – Sydney, Australia

 Held in Sydney Harbour each New Year’s Eve, this is Australia’s version of the Times Square in New York. Thousands line the shores of the harbour to catch 7 tons of explosives being detonated for their visual pleasure. This year I managed to get a front row seat at Garden Island looking directly at the bridge with nothing between myself and its majesty except water and a few dinghies. There were two displays, a family one at 9pm, and the spectacle at midnight. The family display used the barges only, with the fireworks on the bridge being reserved for the midnight show only. Enjoy the images below.
