A few photos from Day 1 of Les Grands Feux 2014

Now with a YouTube video at the bottom.

This past Saturday was the first evening of the 2014 edition of Les Grands Feux du Casino Lac-Leamy and the team from Glorious Entertainment Production Limited represented Hong Kong. They put together a great show with some impressive shells that were coordinated with a fun selection of music from various Broadway shows. The festival is at a new site this year on the Ottawa River at the Museum of History.

The new location offers them an impressive backdrop consisting of Parliament Hill and the Ottawa Locks on the Rideau Canal. Though they aren’t using it this year, if they can secure permission to place fireworks on the Alexandra Bridge, we could see fireworks displays in the national capital region moving to the next level.

I took a lot of photos of the show, which you can see below. The biggest challenge in terms of shooting them was the smoke. It hung around rather than blowing away, which meant that some of the shells were buried in the smoke. Still, it was a good show! 🙂
