Had a great Sunday afternoon/evening chilling out at Burleigh beach watching people fire twirling & my kids dancing to the beat of the drums. The smell of was incense in the air and it was nice not to have to grab a jumper or rain coat! Days like this make me love living on the Gold Coast. The kids had a blast as well, and of course I had my camera and a few ops for some interesting fire twirling light trails. All that and it was only a few k's from home.

This pic above was taken hand held, and on bulb setting with one eye watching the twirler so I could see when I wanted to close the shutter! Was a bit of fun experimentation for me. This one was one of my faves. The guy twirling here was extremely fast.
I like to get out without my tripod now and then to see what I can do - after all a lot of places are not allowing tripods these days so we can't always have it with us. Also when there are crowds it can be a problem.
