Fire in the Sky

Fire in the Sky

Not a lot of time to post today but this doesn't need a long explanation. Perhaps I also got a bit of inspiration from that insane meteor that went over Russia yesterday. Especially in the title.

This is a long exposure shot of the Celebration of Light fireworks festival that they have in Vancouver every summer. I was always able to watch them from my balcony.

It was always a good show and the nice part is that I wouldn't have to be in the giant throng of people trying to escape downtown when it was over.

The colours in this photo just blow me away. That pink and purple, wow.

The blurred effect was simply me twisting the focus ring at the end of a four second exposure, when the firework was about to fade away. That blurred the buildings and the smoke but since the light streaks had already been captured, they remained crisp.

My other fireworks photographs can be found in the gallery.

And about that crowd, this video from Dave Delnea shows exactly what I'm talking about. At the end, when you see all of those people leaving, I'm fairly certain every single one of them walked past my apartment.
