We did not stay for the fireworks at the Auckland Lantern Festival, so I had to create my own in the camera.

Christoph from Hong Kong on a visit early December. It took me a while to understand the light and shadow in this evening shot.

Chinese Lantern Festival

The Chinese Lantern Festival is a highlight at the conclusion of the two weeks of New Year festivities, this year from 18 to 20 February. Masses of people are crowding Albert Park and Princes Street in the City of Auckland, and this year was blessed with fantastic weather for it.

No big fireworks, so I tried to create them in-camera with an exposure of 6 seconds and a bit of camera movement, looking at the garlands of lanterns. The picture below is a more traditional impression of the year of the rabbit.
