2011 rugby world cup fireworks

ok so… anyone who knows me knows i’m pretty much a beginner where sport is concerned. of course, i like it when our teams win; but i’m not usually interested in watching how it happened. but i made an exception yesterday for the RWC opening ceremony. from about 4pm i was watching it on the tv, and at 6pm we went to sit in traffic for an hour to get to Mt Victoria in Devonport, which is probably the best vantage point in the city for waterfront fireworks displays.

this was the same place that i shot the 2011 New Years display from. last night the smoke didn’t really disperse during the show which certainly made some interesting effects but it did block part of the end of the display from view. here’s a couple of pics… (full gallery on our facebook)

  1. Glad to see I wasn’t the only one battling through traffic to get a few shots.
    Looking forward to meeting you at an NZIPP meeting.
    Did a blog post of my own on the fireworks – would love your comment and feedback.
