Being the season of Yuletide, we were browsing the net to check out celebrations of Christmas around the world. We were looking for the markets, Christmas Lights and the best cities to experience the fervour of the festival.
When it came to Australia, the first choice was Sydney. The largest and most vibrant city of the country, what we saw just blew us away. Poorna has been to Sydney but not in this season. We never knew that Sydney is spectacularly beautiful during Christmas. The Christmas lights in the the city are mind blowing.
We are grateful to Nguyễn Ngọc Tuấn who has captured Christmas lights for the last few years and it is stunning. The public buildings like Town Hall, St Mary's Cathedral, Opera House, Customs house have light and sound show everyday until Christmas. The 75 metre facade of cathedral appears like the one we see in fairy tales with colours changing with the help of digital imagery techniques. A series of colourful moving light projections light up the heritage buildings every night.
