Artist's Description

Australia Day, Perth.
My title cannot be any more blatant. This shot was taken on the 26th January 2007 (Australia Day).
It was a pity I didn’t bring my Sigma 28-300mm lens because it could’ve been so useful taking portraits of others in the crowd. One would call that stalking, but Australia Day is a day which every Australian (be it citizens or refugees) celebrate freedom, independence and humanity. What’s wrong with taking pictures of Australians to just reflect that anyway? :)
I was lucky to get this shot. I know many others were too. We had to brace 40C heat to get a good vantage point for the fireworks. Hence the stormy clouds. Magnifique. This is one of the few (decent) shots which I manage to capture.
I hope you like it.

EDIT: The Australian flag was flown by 2 helicopters. It broke the World Record for biggest Flag ever to be hoisted up the sky.
