This years Guy Fawkes fireworks spectacular celebration had the Back to the Future theme. Normally I go down to the beach and shoot freehand, but this year I thought to go try a time-lapse from Mount Pleasant drive. To my surprise I was not the only bloke up there with a camera. However traffic was much better once it was all over.
The time-lapse did not go so well, but I could salvage one frame
Location : Mount Pleasant drive in the John Britten reserve
How to get there : Easy drive up the hill in Sumner Christchurch
Camera Basics : ND Grads are a must if the sun is out.
Helpful hints : It gets windy up there so have something to anker down the tripod
In the area : Great views of Christchurch city and Paragliding
