I've been wanting to properly shoot the New Year's Eve fireworks for several years now. Two years ago I got them from my window
, coming up from behind the opposite building. Last year I couldn't get a single decent photo because of a snow storm. This time? Well, see for yourself.
We were running late and almost missed the fireworks. I mean that literally by the way. We had to run so I could get to this location in time. People were everywhere, so it's where I had to set up, basically with one foot (and one tripod leg) below water. Unfortunately the trees blocked the view, but I think it turned out okay nonetheless. That building is of course Kalmar Castle
. It wasn't midnight however, but around 5 PM. Hence there were still seven hours left of 2011.
