Last night was the 4th installment of Les grands feux Casino du Lac‑Leamy, it was Venezuela’s turn. I went to a new shooting location to include a few of Ottawa’s landmarks in the scene.
Peace Tower with blue spot lights, Rideau Canal at dusk. While waiting for Venezuela to lit the sky. A few minutes later the search lights sent up beams behind the Parliament Buildings.

After three test shots, the show started.
I swapped out my 35mm prime for my 50mm f:1.4 prime. I really like the cascade type of fireworks.
I do note that the Casino du Lac‑Leamy has retweeted several of my photos, and has liked some on Facebook. I was busy on Google Maps looking for a shooting venue for Saturday evening’s Garnd Finale.
