Las Vegas claimed to have the biggest New Year’s Eve party and I think they did. The city is expecting 300,000 tourists to come to welcome the new year in Las Vegas. A major portion of the fame Las Vegas Strip was closed to automobile traffic most of the night and it was wall-to-wall with people. There are over 150,000 hotel rooms in the city and almost 100% booked. But I stayed home for New Year’s Eve because I don’t want to be one of the statistics--too many drunk drivers on the road. And I want to continue taking pictures and post to them for all my friends to enjoy.
I wish you and your family a wonderful and Happy New Year!

The subject is well framed. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the tower and of the fireworks. The black background is making the colors to stand out. All the best for 2013.

this night shot is spectacular. I like the visual effect produced by the fireworks in the tower and its contrast with the darkness of the sky.
It is a good composition to celebrate the beginning of the New Year.
My best wishes for you and your family in 2013.

Yes, I remember the last NY's eve and lovely sounds of an ceremonial artillery. Good presentation of the Fire show. You marked this photo by "Daily Life" category. I am not sure.

Instead of a color organ connected to huge speakers, Spielberg should have used this giant flower pot spitting fire as marker for the UFO landing site!
