Where: Commonwealth Place

When: 8:00 to around 9:30, Thursday 26 January 2023

The lights exhibition goes for 12 minutes and will be presented at 9:00 pm, 9:30 pm and 10:00 pm.  The recommended viewing location is Commonwealth Place so, especially at 9:00 pm there could be a bit of jossling on the lake shore to get the best view.
I intend to arrive in the area at around 7:00 pm.  Check out the night makets and make my way to Commonwealth Place around 8:00 pm.
For photographing the light show, which will use water spray as a screen I expect to have to experiment.  The images are likely to be moving which will require a much faster shutter speed than we would use for fireworks.  There will also need to be some creativity, especially for the 9:00 pm show, to decide on how much ambient light can or should go into the image.
At worst, I should learn something, at best I might get a few good images (and learn something).
Bring wet weather gear in case of rain.


There are no fireworks!
