For anyone who lives in the southern hemisphere, celebrating Christmas is done in the warm embrace of high summer. lt conjures up the image of the barbie on the beach with shrimps, snags and steaks sizzling away.
As it is now July and warm here in the northern hemisphere, I thought I would share my one and only YouTube posting – part of the Lights of Christmas display done in Sydney in 2011. I was taking a friend around who was thinking of making the move to the city and we were enjoying the sultry weather and the fine lighting displays that the city puts on at that time of year. I was also testing out a new camera, and managed to take a video in HD that came to over 9GB in size.
With a bit of editing, adjustment of the settings and a judicial placement of the tripod this was the end result. Posting it to YouTube ended with it being a little lower on the file size and therefore the resolution but please enjoy it as it was meant to be enjoyed – in the warmth with a good glass of chilled wine! Aussie style barbie optional.
