Skyworks.. a baker's dozen!



After traipsing around Kings Park and the city all day on Tuesday I had zero energy to head back in for the City of Perth Skyworks in the evening. Thankfully my brother-in-law Bill did and has very kindly let me use his captures for the night to highlight the pyrotechnical brilliance of the show. The hard part for me was choosing thirteen out of the 200 fabulous shots he took.. this is the difference between using knees as a tripod and actually using a tripod :) I hope you enjoy, merci beaucoup Bill. Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe... p.s. you have no idea how tempted I was to play with the shot above and add in stems, it sort of looks like a bunch of flowers don't you think!

  14. Gosh these are brilliant Grace. The tripod give so much clarity. Wish they weren't so difficult to lug around.

  15. What a spectacular show. You can't shoot fireworks properly without a tripod. Ours on the Fourth of July go off from the middle of the Mississippi but the water isn't nearly wide enough to get such reflections.

  16. Very beautiful and spectacular Grace. I've never seen anything like it in the USA even in Washington,D.C. or New York city. At least get yourself one of those travel tripods Grace. You'll find many uses for it. Then there are many other styles of tripods out there also. All depends on how much you want to pay and how you are going to use it.

  27. Stunning captures, Bill. Thanks for sharing Gracie - I certainly wouldn't battle the 300,000 strong crowd either! That would be my worst nightmare, but lovely to see.
