#1 - Security Personnel keeping the peace while me and my friend wait for the lights and fireworks show


#2 - Time slowly ticked by as throngs and throngs of people walk to and fro along the bridge


#3 & 4 - Finally, after a few hours of waiting, the light show starts getting interesting as spotlights lit the sky to music from the speakers around the esplanade area




#5 - At the stroke of 12 midnight, the fireworks shoot out into the sky, Happy 2006 Singapore!!!

In summary, the fireworks show for the countown was simply amazing! The best I've seen for this year, surpassing the fireworks displays during the fireworks festival & NDP in terms of scale and granduer.

Don't think the pictures we take can fully portray the feelings and emotions felt during the fireworks display. We may all complain about how all the smoke generated by the fireworks mess up the shots and cause over-exposed shots, but to me, what is more important is the experience of being there, at that very moment, live, enjoying the short lived beauty of the fireworks. Whatever pictures we take just adds on to the experience as a nice momento to remember the night by.....

Hope you all enjoy the pics, and as usual, comments will be appreciated :)

I think you have done a good job. Some people complain the fireworks burst in between is too fast but I think you have well in exposure. So no excuses for the rest for not getting a good shot.......haha:bsmilie:
