Saturday was the Grand Finale for Les grands feux Casino du Lac‑Leamy. I had a photo pass for the site, at the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau.

My chosen vantage point was about 400 metres from the launch raft in the Ottawa River. This put the Ottawa skyline as the background as seen in this 4 frame panorama. As I was very close, I mounted my SMC Pentax-DA 14mm f:2.8 prime lens on to my Pentax ✩istD. In my gadget bag were my SMC Pentax-FA 50mm f:1.4, and SMC Pentax-M 35mm f:2.8 prime lenses and a sturdy Manfrotto 190QCB with #222 Joystick head.
The 50 year old Canadian firm Royal Pyrotechnie presented the Grand Finale show. This is a small selection of my favourites.
