Photographer's Note

Over the next few weeks I will present to you some of the hundreds of images I took over the last half hour of the Brisbane Riverfire, an annual celebration of our magnificent city. The Story Bridge had over 3000kg of fireworks set off it for 30 continual minutes, an absolute thrill for the hundreds of thousands of spectators who lined the riverbanks. The F1-11 fighter/bomber jets heralded the start and finish of the event with a 'dump and burn' (sets fire to a trail of jet fuel to make a sort of torch behind the plane at high speeds). My ears are still ringing. What a fantastic event!

Sorry I could not fit the whole bridge in, I was too close to it, and I wished the Tangalooma Catamaran would have stayed still, but I still think this one was worth a post!

Have a great day

Matt
