Welcome to 2013

Posted by
ursulakatariina (Ed, Sweden) on 1 January 2013 in Lifestyle & Culture.

I wasn't going to go out yesterday evening, but then just couple of minutes before midnight I took my camera, checked the battery, put some warm clothes on, jumped into my boots and ran out. The whole world was full of horribly loud voices and beautiful lights. But it also was pouring rain, in less than two minutes I was soaking and my poor camera was soaking wet too. I had no tripod or even monopod just because I did not plan to go out. I managed to get few ok shots before I gave up and came back in. By the time I got in I was shaking because of all the water and cold wind but I still say it was fun to see all the wonderful fireworks.

Welcome to 2013 my AM3 friends!

Actually you ended up with a very reasonable shot, the three pools of red helped it out by attracting attention.

Ari from Turku, Finland

Meillä satoi vettä koko uuden vuoden yön, näin ikkunasta pari ilotulitetta :) Ei ole varmaan koskaan ollut näin vähän rakettiroskaa kuin aamulla

1 Jan 2013 12:16pm

@Ari: Täällä satoi kanssa eilen ja viime yönä ihan täysillä, ei ole luntakaan enää oikein missään. Ihan hetken mielijohteesta pari minuuttia vaille keskiyön ponkaisin pihalle katsomaan jos edes jonkun kuvan raketeista saisi. Toivon, että kamera antaa vesisateessa uittamisen joskus anteeksi. :)

Oikein hyvää vuotta 2013!

The Mouse from Glasgow, United Kingdom

Happy new year to you too, all the best to you and The Artist, have a great year.
