8th August 2006 – Singapore Fireworks Festival – Team Singapore

The 2nd fireworks was performed by Team Singapore on the eve of Singapore’s National Day Celebrations. Due to the fact that this was held on a public holiday eve, it was very crowded and by the time I arrived at around 2000 hrs, I could hardly walk with many people sitting down around the Esplanade area.

Finally, I managed to wriggle my way to the end of the Esplanade portion , walking into the Marina Bay park area. It was slightly less crowded and I managed to get myself into a point whereby the people were sitting down happily and showed no signs of standing up during the fireworks.

Prepared my DSLR w / tripod and cable remote and I put my brief case with my camera backpack down, huge relief as I made the mistake of carrying 2 bulky items. Adjusted my DSLR settings after seeking advice from Jeff.

With the fireworks firing off @ 2100 hrs, I did manage to take slightly better pictures than my previous attempt on saturday. It was an exciting time for me as I loved fireworks, especially on the grand finale segment.

Hope you guys enjoy the humble fireworks display (Pardon the distractions again!)
