This is a light sculpture called Crepuscular Beam, part of the recent Melbourne White Night festival. These beams of light were kilometres long, if you believe the website, and they moved around. In the background are the blue Arts Centre spire and the Eureka building. The clouds were a strange red color - the result of all the city lights being reflected on the clouds.
This was one place where there was enough room to set up a tripod without it getting bumped by thousands of people jostling around.

Hi Vincent. Top quality now that you had more choice at your disposal thanks to the tripod.Love the strong contrasts and the blue coolness against the warm surrounds.Never got to walk on the grass as my b-i-law started fretting about going home.Regards. Klaudio.

Sensational night composition, in which we appreciate the ultra modern lines of the city, these fantastic light jets, which intersect at the sky, we see the light tower in the background, also is a nice item.
Also both sharpness, such as lighting are great.
Well taken photo. I Like
Enjoy a nice day.

I like this different and artsy view. The blue lights form an "X" as they rise, and it looks great against the black night sky. I also like that the blue color matches the spire in the distance. These rising beams of light remind me of the "Tribute in Light" that rises from Ground Zero every year on 9/11.
