Lac Leamy Fireworks

Has it been a year already? I guess so. Times flies, blah blah blah.

This week is walking down memory lane week. First, I came back to see these amazing sculptures on the shore of the Ottawa River, at Remic Rapids, that I discovered in August 2009. And then, last Saturday, we attended the yearly Lac Leamy Fireworks Competition, like we did last year.

We headed for the same great (and free) spot: the Galleries de Hull parking lot, right in front of the casino from where the fireworks are shot. I can’t say I’m getting much better at taking fireworks pictures: it’s a bit of a hit and miss. I use a tripod of course, and a wide focal lens with a slow shutter. Yet, it’s always difficult to not overexpose the fireworks and to come out with a picture that is too not hazy or smoky.

I’m pretty happy with these few shots, they turned out to be the best of an embarrassing numbers of pictures I took that night.

You can see the whole Ottawa Summer set here.
