Lismore Lantern Parade (part 2)

Continued from part 1

The parade lasted an hour, then there was a “fiery finale and fireworks” during which there is drumming and a huge bonfire. With something like 25,000 30,000 people attending (and Lismore’s population is around 45,000), it’s a community-minded way to spend the longest night of the year!

    Hi, great photos,
    I’m the parade manager and i don’t actually get to see the parade, this year i had to do a mad dash from the start point (where i was managing it leaving ), through the parade to the end to help the arrival , its great to view it from an audience perspective through your beautiful photos…..

    Wow, this looks like a wonderful parade with some really imaginative floats. I’m also impressed with your rather deft camera work. Those are just about ideally exposed, and you don’t seem to have too much grain/noise, or blur. It’s definitely not always that easy to get atmospheric night shots, but you’ve done a good job.

      Thanks, Alan. It’s a really hard environment to take photos in, as you point out. I decided to just put the camera on auto, take lots of shots and hope for the best! I took about 120 shots, and the rest were awful. Being a photographer yourself, you know how these things go.
