Singapore had its Fireworks Celebration & Festival 2008 at Marina Bay floating platform on the Friday and Saturday nights. It was a spectacular and amazing night to witness and experience the attractive fireworks right at the heart of the city.
I was there to witness this marvellous event on both days. I really enjoyed it though it was drizzling on both nights. This was the best fireworks viewing experience that I had.
I was there to see 2 or 3 years ago but I had quite an awful experience before. it was so crowded and I could not really enjoy the night. Worse still, the smoke and burning smell left behind by the fireworks really made me breathless.
Due to this bad experience I had, I decided to take a risk and go over to the other side of the Marina to view the fireworks this time. The location I went is right opposite the floating platform, on the other band of the marina.
Wow, I like the place very much. Firstly, there is a big field and therefore it was not that crowded. It is much further from the fireworks lcoation and therefore the smoke and burning smell did not affect me on both nights ;-)
Plus, it is good location for me to take good photo shots as it can capture a wide area of the sky. Unfortunately, I do not have a wide angle lens, otherwise, I can capture the fireworks and the whole city skyline together.
I let my camera continuously snapping pictures for 10-15 minutes. I even filled up my 1G memory on the 2nd nights. I had close to 350 photos. Amazing and I like it very much as this is the first time I managed to take the fireworks photos myself ;-)
Alright, I have uploaded some of my photos on my Picasa album as you see in the slideshows below. If you do like to have some of those original photos, do let me know and I will be happy to share with you.
