This is the second weekend of a 2.5 week event in Sydney called the Sydney Vivid Light Festival. Various landmarks and buildings are lit up in interesting colour and colourful movements. Firstly I'm starting with 4 short vids which make it all look better than the still pics I have posted here. Please watch the vids, they are definitely worth watching!!!

The pics, except for the first couple and last which were taken from Circular Quay train station/wharf, were taken on the Darling Harbour ferry. The first two pics were taken before the lights came on. The rest are various buildings and landmarks seen while on the harbour. Forgive the quality, they were all taken from my IPhone at night, which obviously isn't ideal for quality pics.

Wow that's really cool -- nice shots. I love night time photography, and the lights must have made it a lot of fun to shoot. I've always wanted to go to Sydney, too.

Very cool! :)

This makes me think... I wonder what the first humans(like, prehistoric) would've thought if they'd seen this. It would completely blow their minds.

Idk why I thought about that but it's interesting. Very cool light show :P

I like night time photography too. Unfortunately I don't have the equipment to do a good job of it. But Vivid is amazing and worth the bother of low quality shots and fighting the thousands of people around the city. The opera House sails was clearly the highlight of the show. The vids show it pretty well, but seeing it in the flesh is so much better.


Love these pics, Stephen. Really pretty - all the colors are great :)

Thanks Alli. Glad you liked them. :)
