Fireworks at the NDP 2011 Preview

Last year, due to the global recession, the Government of Singapore was practicing austerity and the National Day parade and subsequent celebrations were somewhat subdued.


This year, however, they've pulled out all the stops. Every year about 2 weeks before the actual event there is a "preview" (or a complete dress rehearsal if you will). Singapore's National Day is on the 9th of August and this year, in the five weeks leading up to the preview, there were additional fireworks every weekend.


This shot was taken during the preview during this last weekend. I got to a good vantage point this time and I'm quite pleased with how this shot turned out.
