Singapore Fireworks Festival 2008 ~ French Romance

The Singapore Fireworks Festival returned again in 2008, with the countries France and Korea performing.

I didn’t manage to get my tickets in time and I had to make my way and squeeze with other people at the Esplanade. Due to my half marathon on Sunday 24th early morning, I only went to take the fireworks performance by France, called French Romance on 22nd August. 
Reaching there rather early, I didn’t realise that the fireworks would only start at 2130hrs and lasted about 15mins only. Well, I enjoyed my fireworks nevertheless, my humble fireworks photos are displayed below –

By using the same fireworks platform for National Day Parade 2008, the fireworks were a lot closer to the people at the Esplanade and it offers a different challenge and difficulty. However, if you are sitting on the Marina Bay Gallery, it would most probably be an excellent angle and perspective to capture the fireworks photos.

Hope you all enjoy the fireworks ! Do drop by my flickr for more photos !


  1. Your photos are quite beautiful.

    I also love the photos of night piece of Singapore, I think you can try a photo with the fireworks and the city together next time, That’ must be wonderful too!

  2. Thanks for your support !

    I would get tickets if possible to sit at the gallery and capture the fireworks from a different angle and with the city landscape behind it !

  3. These are great photos!

  4. Stunning firework photos! Must be very crowded that day, right? But all is worth the effort with such nice production!

  6. Hi Eunice,

    Thank You ! It was quite crowded as I was squeezing with the people at the Esplanade.

    This year fireworks are a lot tricker and more challenging to take !

  7. Hey – great fireworks shots – I also enjoyed the NDP 2008 shots below. I just recently posted on my own blog about photographing fireworks – looks like I wasn’t the only one having all the fun! (I also had trouble with smoke)..
