Happy 2017


Despite a ban of non-public fireworks due to yet another extreme winter drought and almost no natural snow, New Year celebrations in Innsbruck still please the photographers eye.

Authorities are discussion for NY 2017/2018 to also ban public fireworks and replace them with laser and/or light shows. How this could look like:

silvester, nordkette, innsbruck, new years eve, fireworks, feuerwerk, tirol, österreich, best firework

Do you prefer the classic firework?

silvester, nordkette, innsbruck, new years eve, fireworks, feuerwerk, tirol, österreich, best firework silvester, nordkette, innsbruck, new years eve, fireworks, feuerwerk, tirol, österreich, best firework

Did you know that we could easily reduce air pollution through fine dust with just not using fireworks at NYE? A study published by the German Environmental Agency suggests that we could safe 4.000 t of dust particles in Germany, that’s 15% of the traffic pollution, anually. Maybe it’s time to rethink these traditions and opt for something better.
