New Year's Eve 2009/2010 Fireworks Over Melbourne

Megan and I ventured out to Docklands, Melbourne, Australia, for the New Year’s Eve fireworks.

The day’s temperatures reached 37°C and moments before the family session of fireworks started, the predicted storm rolled in. The lightning, rain, and wind put on a show to complement the fireworks.

I managed another couple of film experiments over New Year’s Eve. Both films where taken on our little point and shoot Canon. My goal with these edits was to publish as quickly as possible. Both films took less than one hour from importing into iMovie to publishing on YouTube; a fun challenge that turned out well.

Melbourne’s fireworks are divided into two. The first session, at 9:15 pm, is for families.

The second session, at midnight, is the bigger show.

I hope you had a fun New Year’s Eve, and have a great 2010.

Happy New Year.
