Tomorrow it is Lunar New Year with the Year of the Rabbit. Tonight there were the preparations for the New Year’s Eve show. I like how thoroughly Singapore prepares their event with a full run through of the show and even a partial firework show. The advantage of attending the preparations is the lack of a crowd and the earlier timing. I don’t think I will go down there tomorrow.
Fireworks with the financial district in the background. This was about a 4 second exposure. Not long enough to get smooth water, but otherwise the brightness of the fireworks would blow out all my highlights.

It is larger than a soccer field. The impressive building on the left is the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore’s latest acquisition to it’s skyline.
