Taipei 101

Had the great opportunity to visit Taipei for possibily the last time the Taipei 101 will have it’s annual New Years fireworks celebration.  This year was the longest firework show so far lasting a whole 6 minutes Long compared to previous 2 minute long shows. The very first one lasted only 23sec long.  Videos of this online are great but gives no real idea at the magnificence of this display of fireworks and lighting. Imagine 20,000 fireworks and 140,000 led lights lighting the building and sky at the stroke of midnight! I’m very fortunate that I was able to capture the monumental moment and possibly the last!

The final image was shot with my Nikon D810 and the video was recorded with the iphone7 on a DJI Osmo Mobile and tripod. I was disappointed that the video came out over exposed of the fireworks but oh well.  Lesson learned here... pay attention!
