GYMPIE photographer Michael Young had a completely different view of the Gympie Show fireworks on opening night.

While Show patrons crowded in the grandstand Thursday night, jostling for prime viewing position, Mr Young took a more casual approach.

He set up his camera from a high vantage point and filmed the spectacle to piece together a stunning time lapse.

The fireworks continue tonight on People's Day of the Show at 8am, timed with the Tom Grady Real Estate $1000 cash giveaway draw.
