Australia Day Fireworks 2012

Featured on, this image was also a finalist in the 94.5 2012 Skyworks Photography Competition.

Crazy weather today for Australia Day Fireworks 2012. It was 42C in the morning, but by late afternoon dark stormy clouds began forming. We had stayed back at a friend’s BBQ a tad late so didn’t have it enough time to make it to the south side of the Swan River, but after seeing the sky we knew we had to take some photos… So we went to a car park roof top in the centre of Perth.

The lighting began just before the Australia Day fireworks started, creating an amazing display natures and man’s pyrotechnics complemented each other. It was an awesome skyshow!
