Festival Fireworks








Today the Picton Maritime Festival was held, on an unsettled day weather wise, the was scattered rain disrupting the fun events all day. I was forced to run for cover during a heavy down pour so came home, But in the evening it was much better weather so the huge crowd was able to watch and listen to the fireworks display. Seeing fireworks over the water adds a whole new dimension to the lights and booms. I captured these, my first ever try at firework photography, from our balcony. The boom really echoed around the hills and the sky was all lit up.
A most enjoyable display, better than my photos show!

Wonderful, Glennis. That remins me the fireworks in Paris for July 14th, when I was little girl.
