Chicago New Year 2020 Fireworks on Michigan Ave.

Chicago celebrates and rings in 2020 with a huge display of fireworks on Michigan Ave. and several other locations. A big turn out this year, even with the late winter cold coming in. Many spectators braved the elements to see the display of fireworks on the River Walk. I chose the same location as last year because of the great vantage point. The footage is captured here with Sony A6300 and Canon 24mm lens. Settings are f2.8, ISO 1600 and shutter speed set 1/40th.

I have included some additional footage taken with the Yi Xiaomi action camera and several random photos of the people celebrating the event. I will have a follow up video that is a POV of the rest of my evening and will upload at a later time. How did you enjoy your New Year celebration? or if you were there in the audience, let me know, I would sure love your feedback on this.

Thanks again for all the support here and on all the other platforms online. Your time and help is surely appreciated and inspires me to bring you more footage and photography from the Windy City.
