Tonight was another part of the Riverway opening. Yes, the River Festival was a few weeks ago, but this “fire and water” display was postponed due to rain. Maybe they waited three weeks until they were sure that the weather would be ok. No matter, it worked for me – if it had been a few weeks ago I probably wouldn’t have gone. Anyway, here are a few shots of the evening (in reverse order, because Hello and I still have our differences).
The fireworks (some of). This is what happens when you don’t have a tripod. And this was the best of a bunch of pictures (until I ran out of space on the memory card – need to get a bigger memory card, I think).
There was some story about a river monster (that was good) and some other monsters (that were bad) and a dragon that breathed fire (which you can see from all the orange light in the picture). Ok, I’d had a few drinks and wasn’t really paying attention. But it was good.
I think this is the good monster.
A shot from the distance (before I decided to go sit in the garden to get a closer look at the action).
Earlier in the evening – people waiting for the fireworks to start. The blue light is where all the dancing and fire twirling and fire breathing (from a fake dragon) and stuff (in the earlier shots) was to happen.
