Happy New Year – Sydney Fireworks

Last year I moved to Sydney.

We decided to move into something small and affordable. Our apartment is tiny.

Here’s the payoff…

The view from our bedroom tonight.

Happy New Year everybody!

Happy New Year! (Wobbly hands come with the territory)

Late Update: Here’s a bonus photo taken from the other side of the bridge by friends in a nearby park.

  1. Looks fracking great. Wish I was there.

  2. Lovely picture! To think that i was under that bridge just a few months ago for my first visit to Australia. I wrote about it on my wordpress blog. There’s a link at http://www.twitter.com/Geotravel Well, thanks for the inspiration! I loved Sydney. It all seems so much like a dream now…and i wish i’d had time to tour the outbacks and eat more local produce. Happy New Year. Peace be with You.

    • All the more reason to come back soon.
      I like the picture. Every day when I walk to the ferry I see hundreds of people trying to take exactly the same shot. I wonder what would happen if you created a photo montage of a year in the life of the bridge from all those shots!

  3. I used to live in Cremorne Point and always watched the fireworks from the pier – every year they were amazing! Happy New Year!

    • They were interviewing the family who make the fireworks. Apparently they have been making them since the 1700s and hail from Sicily. When they moved to Australia the family business came with them.
      They certainly outdid themselves last night….

  4. i wanna go there ๐Ÿ˜‰

  13. Absolutely fantabulous! (I may have made that word up or heard some form of this combo.) But fantabulous!

  14. That is absolutely amazing!!

  15. What a stunning view you got
    there! The 101 firworks this
    year was just like any other
    year from the past, a total
    blast off; that’s all.
    Hong Kong’s city view this
    year’s got it all, lights
    shows on skycrapers exterior,
    sequenced firworks from all
    of them, one follow by

    I just realize 101’s firework
    is probably just average…


    Envying you!

    Happy new year!

    • Yeah… the kitchen is tiny, the bathroom even smaller…. but the view makes up for it all.
      Always something to see out on the harbour…. five minutes ago the first penguin of 2010 swam past!
