Fireworks in Venice

The fireworks show that I witnessed along the Grand Canal in Venice last night will go down as one of the best in my life. It’s not that the fireworks themselves were particularly spectacular, but the atmosphere was electric! Families set up space along the promenade…. lots of candles and japanese paper lanterns to denote their picnic area along the canal. The rich people have huge yachts filled with revelers: one plays 70s disco music, another 80s music, another techno. And the boats all toot their horns in unison after the fireworks finale. It was awesome!

I’m no photographer. I’m sure that someone else could have done better, but… I used the fireworks setting on the camera and set it on the Arsenale bridge for stability.
