We were lucky enough to have one of the windows of our hotel room facing the London Eye so we had a great view of the New Year’s Eve celebrations without having to stand out in the cold. Here’s our view just before midnight.
And then the fireworks began. Here are some of my favorites.
They coordinated the color of the lights on the London Eye with the color of the fireworks throughout the show, and they also used the Eye as the launch pad for a lot of the fireworks so they would come shooting off of from the edges. Below was my favorite part with all of the different colors of fireworks.
After a great show the smoke changed colors as it floated away and we could hear the mass of people down by the river singing Auld Lang Syne.
It was a pretty wonderful way to start 2010.
