There are perhaps three cities that are world famous for their New Year's Eve celebrations. Edinburgh has Hogmanay, New York has a crystal ball but Sydney has the biggest fireworks show in the world.

When three metric tonnes of explosives go into the air this is what it looks like
Happy New Year!
It's hard not to be impressed!

To get this shot I had to queue up from 7:30 in the morning and wait for sixteen and a half hours. The absolute best spots were already taken, but I was still more than content with the position we had.

The day was spent with Hamish, Fiona and friends. In effect it was one long extended picnic, culminating with the pyrotechnics at midnight.

Happy New Year everyone!
