    I love all the lights in this photo...great capture. I lived near Samford (Draper) for seven years but never actually went to the show....but your photos make me wish I did.

    Beautiful fireworks and you managed to get the Ferris Wheel on the photo too.

    It's a nice little show, that's for sure. No-where near as busy as the Ekka but still enough to do and see for a few of hours, and the fireworks are pretty decent for such a small show.

    Yep, I'm quite happy with that :)

    Nice work David.

    I hope to make it along to the nest Meetup, I feel like I'm missing out.

    You are missing out ;-)

    In more ways then one, I dragged Martin and Heidi back to our mountain retreat and we sat around on the veranda drinking beer, eating chips and later I cooked up a storm Moroccan style before we went back down to the show for the fireworks.

    David, you can't just tell us about cooking up a storm - where are the pics? : ))

    Wow! Just dropped my jaw on the floor!
  • leadegroot said:
    Oh boy! Three photographers in the house and none of them thought to photograph the food!
    How did that happen?
  • David de Groot said:
    D'oh! Ummm, we ate it too fast too consider photographing it... that goes for the Mexican Garlic Prawns on Spanish rice I cooked last night too...

    Thanks Margot :) The other fireworks shots weren't bad too, but I just chose two to upload.

    Quite so... too busy eating... either that or the beer intake earlier dulled the photographic senses.

    The Moroccan style food was very delicious and I guess that's why no one considered taking any photos while eating.

    Thank you David :-)

    Thanks Heidi :)

    Wasn't bad for something just thrown together on a whim.

    That is a spectacular picture david! do you think there'll be more firework shows coming around? do let me know : )
  • David de Groot said:
    Sure are. The Ekka is coming and they usually have nightly fireworks displays (from memory, it's been a long time since I last went).

    But more importantly, the Riverfire event is coming on the 1st of Sept. Fireworks along most of the inner city river section and usually a couple of F-111 fighter bombers doing a dump & burn fly past. Quite spectacular stuff and the most fireworks you're likely to see in Brisbane at the one time.
