Australia Day Skyworks - Perth Western Australia by 

The Australia day Skyworks in Perth, Western Australia. January 26 2010.

I wanted to try something different this year, so I revisited one of the freeway overpasses that I had previously visited on another photo shoot.

My original plan was to shoot alongside the river, but the tide had come in late in the afternoon, and there wasn’t anywhere good to stand since the water level had covered the beach and it was hard to get a clear shot of the city skyline so I decided to shoot from the overpass to take advantage of the traffic travelling along the freeway resulting in a combination of the fireworks and traffic trails.

Unfortunately as the fireworks display got underway cars started to park alongside the freeway in the emergency stopping lane which kind of ruined the clean lines I was after. People were told not to park alongside the freeway all day long, yet by the end of the display there were 25 cars parked in the emergency lane! The police finally came along just as the firework display was coming to a end to move everyone at the end.

Canon EOS 7D And 15-85 IS Shot at 15mm.
