Last night I managed to secure a good spot on the Hopetoun Street bridge over the motorway to photograph the New Year fireworks display from the Sky Tower at midnight. I was in the same spot last year, but at five minutes to midnight a massive bank of clouds shrouded the top of the Sky Tower, rendering the display completely invisible across the city. Just like last year, as midnight approached cars on the motorway offramp peeled off to the side lane and parked up for a few minutes to watch - strictly illegal, but no-one seemed to mind. Then the five-minute display kicked off as the hour struck, in perfect conditions. (Click the images to enlarge).
