On Friday night Geelong’s Floating Christmas Tree was launched…literally.
behind the idea of a Floating Christmas Tree for Geelong
after seeing a similar tree off the coast of Rio De Janeiro.
Yesterday, Saturday, we decided to have a look at our floating Christmas tree.
It looked interesting in daylight…guarded by the Bollards…
and breath-taking by night.
Thousands of visitors crammed the foreshore
enjoying the attraction.
We were lucky to find a park close by to capture this shot.
Although its 25 metre height cannot be compared with Rio’s 82 metre tree,
I believe this may be the first Floating Christmas Tree in Australia.
Mayor, Darren Lyons and #EventsGeelong are to be congratulated for being
first to erect such a tourist attraction in Australia.
Money well spent, I say.
We waited for twenty to thirty minutes to see
all the colours and lighting effects
with a hand held Nikon D90 loaded with a
Nikkor 70-300mm zoom lens at full stretch.
I cropped the ‘red’ shot to create an illusion of being closer.
