Going Out With A Bang

Fireworks cap off Canada Day over Ottawa and Gatineau, and my preferred spot for seeing them is Major's Hill Park. I got in a lot of photographs and two videos this year. You can view those here and here.

  7. The appeal of fireworks is something that has always escaped me and I wonder how much it interrupts the activities of nocturnal creatures. Probably scares the living daylights out of them too.
