2nd Sibu Lantern Festival - Day View of the Street Lanterns

In my previous post I shared about the light-up and night view of 13,000 lanterns covering Sibu's sky at 2nd Sibu Lantern Festival held from 16th - 26th September. If you are at the scene, you would feel how tremendous that is! Although there are critics saying that the lanterns are not properly aligned, but I believe it is just the little imperfection. Overall comments are still encouraging.

A friend told me that this is prettier than Singapore Orchard Road during Christmas season. Another friend come all the way from Kuching just to witness its beauty as well as taking photos on it because according to her, thousands of lanterns on the streets is something unique and attractive. I believe that this is another event that had put Sibu in the center of attention after the 516 Sibu by election despite the scale is smaller.

Cut the craps, in this post I gonna share the day view of the street lanterns. Although night view is more romantic, but day view has its own attractiveness. Capturing on daylight is much easier than night as the natural lighting is sufficient especially when the sky is clear. However, exposed under the hot sun is unavoidable. Anyway, I am satisfied with the outcome. It is not pro, but is the efforts that count. Hope you like them too!
