Awesome shot by +Clarence Burke.
 
Happy Canada Day!  I had the opportunity to witness last week's  fireworks display in celebration of the United States' Fourth of July and Canada's Canada Day.  This is a joint celebration between Detroit, Michigan and Windsor, Ontario,  I was on the Windsor riverwalk as I snapped this view of the fireworks against Detroit's skyline.

I especially like the starburst lights you have down front and below..... I tried to create that (and failed). We had the same idea about using the architecture. Pity we didn't meet up. Next time huh....... :-)

Moon Over Brevard

The bottom portion of the image is actually the lcd display on my camera. I think I may have generated a few keepers...

Remember, the fireworks are not 'high altitude' so from a long way back, they are fairly low. I'll be sitting by the trees, probably just behind the closest people to the launch site. Also with my tripod up, remote in hand and wife on elbow. 

But I will come look for you................ :-)
