New Year Eve Fireworks...

  • Needs a location

  • I heard that this year 150 anniversary party is going to start with a bang. The fireworks are back. I love fireworks photography, its a challenge to get it just right. Ad the cold weather, it's really going to be challenging. But if we are lucky, we could have a nice, cold, very clear night and maybe some reflections on the snow. I will post more details as I get them...

    Hope to see you then...

    I saw that, I thought that was just what you wanted to limit in your apartment in general.

      Thanks for clarifying. My apartment and balcony can handle more but because of the tripods needed for photographing fireworks, I don't think it would be safe to have more than 10. My terrace-sized balcony measures
      17 1/2 feet long by 7 feet deep.
      There will also be chairs for anyone who needs to sit.

    Louise, that sounds wonderful but what's the capacity for your balcony? LOL

    I hope wherever we are, there is lots of parking and not too far walking with the tripod and camera gear - oh yes and the thermos of hot chocolate!

    Claude, can I get a ride with you? I don't want to drive alone in the dark. I can come to your place if that helps.

    I live on the 26th floor of an apartment building on Riverside Drive near the Riverside Hospital. I face the Rideau River, the Ottawa River and the Gatineau Hills. I have a terrace-sized balcony and can accommodate 8-10 people. If you can't find a good location, I am willing to offer my balcony. If it's too cold, people can come inside. My home is non-smoking but people can go downstairs to smoke. There is plenty of parking on the street in front of the building and a free visitor parking lot on the side. I will try ot find a way of posting a pic of the Casino du Lac Leamy Fireworks and some taken at Landsdowne Park, now TD Place, to give you an idea of the types of pics that can be taken.
