Taipei 101 On Fire 2008

This was one of the best shots of the night.


Photos taken during the first few minutes of 2008 in Taipei, Taiwan, Asia. I was camped out at the top of the Sunworld Dynasty Hotel in Taipei. I only realized later that I could have gone up the ladder and gotten an even better and steadier view. These were taken with a tripod, but it was a little shaky since I was near the top of banana tree. I didn’t have enough time to setup, so most of the shots are taken on automatic. Ideally I would have taken continual shots with a custom ISO setting. Some of the shots had a higher ISO than I would have liked and have a significant amount of noise.

Taken with a Nikon D200 and a 18-200VR lens on the 1st of January 2008. You can see the shots taken at the party here.


One of the best shots of the night.

This was also a really good shot.

Another good one.
