I was the only one at Tan Jetty to shoot the fireworks by the Floating Kuan Yin Temple, Hean Boo Thean, scheduled to be at 9.30 pm and 11.00 pm. However, I managed to shoot the first session only but not the later one as it was approaching 12.00 midnight. I left the Tan Jetty as cannot wait any longer as it is Chap Lap Meh (16th Night) and not Chap Goh Meh (15th Night) as the concert there is still in full swing which can be clearly across the incoming tide.

More Fireworks from the Floating Temple ~ Part 2   1 comment


More Fireworks from the Floating Kuanyin Temple ~ Part 2, this is the continuation of the previous series. The duration of these fireworks was so long that we had recorded a huge variety of various types of fireworks with different colours and shapes. Needless to stress, tripods are essential photographic equipment in these snap shots. I use the timer of the DSLR to lessen the camera shake though the wooden jetty was slowly rocking due to the incoming tide.

Fireworks at Floating Temple on Chap Goh Meh – Part 1   Leave a comment


Fireworks at Floating Temple on Chap Goh Meh – Part 1 covered a part of the series of various types of fireworks that were let off by Hean Boo Thean, the Floating Kuanyin Temple at the Weld Quay Resettlement Area. We, Michael Chuan, Ban Seng and myself were shooting from Tan Jetty which was opposite the Temple. Using tripods and the sharpest aperture and at ISO 100 with 3 seconds to 5 seconds timing, the photos were the results after editing and cropping. Enjoy as we enjoyed shooting that night – the Chinese Valentine Night known as Chap Goh Meh.
