Happy 2008!

As usual, Madeira Island welcomes the New Year with a huge fireworks show.
Enjoy it and… plan your trip to attend it next year!
Believe me, it’s worthwhile! :)

For those that like photography, my equipment settings were these ones: EOS 400D & Canon 18-55. Shooting Mode: Tv. Shutter speed: 1/60, 1/50 and 1/40. ISO: 1600. WB: Auto. Compensation: +1 step.
My camera was handheld in all these shots, without tripod.

City overview some time before the mid-night.

Funchal harbour. 12 Cruises came to Madeira Island this year. Onboard there were around 13.000 tourists!

Wowowowow!……….. Red Sea in Madeira! :)

Boom! The explosion moment :)

Golden rain. I love these one's. The effect on the dark sky is simply fantastic!

Firing from some ships

Down town and harbour view

West side of the city

Artistic shot :) Try to move you lense zoom…

Final ones…

So strong that they are able to light the city again!

The crowd and the fire

Heavier! Stronger!…

and finish! :)
After this, time to celebrate, phone the dear one's, give them a huge hug and kiss the one's around you.
May 2008 be an healthy and joyfull year to us.
