First Denver New Years Eve

Copyrighted Photograph

I spent my first Denver New Years Eve hanging out with a great bunch of people from the Denver Photo Walk group. We hung out at Diamon Hill Park to photograph the New Years Eve fireworks taking place downtown. It was a short eight minute fireworks display. And though I was hoping the fireworks would be a bit bigger and higher in the sky, it was fun getting out in the cold weather and enjoying the Denver skyline. From those who had seen previous year events it sounded like this firework display was a bit less lively and smaller.

This is probably the best photo I have from the night though there are a few others that I enjoyed too. I debated which color setting to use for post processing and ended up using the automatic setting that the camera created when I took the photograph. I like the yellow ting of the skyline with the purple and blue hues of the fireworks and the tower that is part of Elitch Gardens.

If you want to know more about the Denver Photo Walk group you can drop me a message or go to the website and do a search for Denver Photo Walk. (Or just click on the link in the first sentence of this post.)



Wow, you really are good at this. I could use some tricks on night shots since we're having some nice events in the night at our wedding. We've already hired some wedding photographers NYC but I like to get involved and come up with new ideas too.

Wonderful capture!  So nice to meet you this weekend.  Hopefully we can get out to shoot together again.
