Pukekura Park, New Plymouth, New Zealand

I went to look at the Pukekura Park lights on my own this evening Boxing Day the 26th of December 2010. This had the distinct advantage of being able to move quickly through the large mass of folk present. Not too much new but enjoyable for a whole host of visual reasons. I was though taken with the ultra violet light display show here in a short video and a photo. Very nicely done.
