Sydneysider's way of crossing over

This is a little delayed, but definitely worth mentioning....
Sydney's fantastic New Year's Eve Fireworks!

Every year there are 2 sets of fireworks to celebrate the arrival of the new year: at 21:00 and 00:00.
This is taking into consideration families with children, so that the children can go to sleep earlier after the 21:00 fireworks, which lasts 7 minutes.
The 00:00 is an elaborate display of light, colour, texture, and sound in the night sky, lasts 12 magical minutes.
The fireworks dots along Parramatta river in several locations (I spotted 5 locations this year), and incorporates Sydney's iconic landmark - Sydney Harbour Bridge and its surrounding highrise buildings.

This year we gathered at the Facet Studio office for the 21:00 fireworks.
Thanks to the location and height we were able to see a good overview in the comfort of the office.

But.. BUT!
Of course for the count down we need to be amongst the crowd!!

Here are some shots I took with my phone camera...it is really hard to convey the excitement..
May 2012 bring everyone happiness and peace.
