A little sneak peek at Vivid Sydney this year at Taronga Zoo…

NIKON D750 + 16.0-35.0 mm f/4.0 @ 21 mm, 1 sec at f/6.3, ISO 800

I was lucky enough to get to check out a special preview night of Be the Light for the Wild created by the awesome Ample Projects team and hosted by ANZ. My youngest daughter an I had a fabulous time exploring the Zoo at night visiting these marvellous light creations.

Taronga Zoo’s traditional animals of the wild play host to an additional cast of creatures including an echidna, chameleon, crocodile, cicadas and even a funnel-web spider, along with thousands of smaller lanterns made by NSW school students as part of the Zoo’s Centenary celebrations.

The front facade of the zoo also plays host to a fabulous building projection also created by Ample Projects. Above is a little animated GIF celebrating some of the images from the storyline. If you have the opportunity this Vivid to make your way over to Taronga Zoo it is well worth the visit.

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.
