Australia Day this is what I did, flew a stack of kites at the fireworks display at Penrith. Next time we plan to have fireworks on the kites as well.

Be careful what fireworks you go for.

Miraculous I go away and have a fly and a good nights sleep and the pics work.
Thanks Thief!   Flying the kites from the back of a jetski in the dark with a big crowd and fireworks going off right alongside was an amazing experience. It was a team effort with Mike Richards from Kite Magic spearheading the event and Roger and I flying and Chris on the launch. All part of celebrating Australia Day!
