Happy New Year!

Taipei puts on a spectacular fireworks display every year for the New Year celebration rivalling much larger cities like London and Sydney. 

The fireworks are usually always put on in the Hsinyi district (信義區) of the city and Taipei 101, one of the tallest buildings in the world and the pride of the city has the pleasure of taking the main stage for the event. 

More than a million people usually show up to watch the show which can make getting there a bit difficult and getting home even more frustrating - but the show is well worth it for anyone who hasn't seen it in person. 

I didn't think I'd be able to get a good spot for the show, so I only brought my camera and left my tripod at home. That will be my last regret of 2014 as I got an excellent spot to see the show and the shots would have been so much nicer with a tripod, remote and filters. 

Oh well. 

Happy New Year everyone! 新年快樂~
