Happy New Year to all our readers! As the 1st of January 2015 ticks over around the world, spectacular celebrations have commenced, many involving copious amounts of fireworks. One of the stalwart sources of amazing fireworks displays (and I feel I can say this without seeming biased) is Sydney, Australia, who’s fireworks display is typified by the launching of walls of fire from the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. While this display is typically filmed with more conventional methods, like helicopters and blimps, this year, drones filmed the Sydney fireworks, some of which were up to 1000 ft above Sydney Harbour. Check out some of the amazing footage in the video below:
