Les Grands Feux Day 2: Italy

August 11, 2011 @ 23:46 By: gordon Category: Fireworks, Photography

Though the weather at the beginning of the evening on Wednesday was rather damp, it cleared up and ended up being just about perfect for an evening of amazing fireworks at Les Grands Feux du Casino du Lac-Leamy courtesy the team from Parente Fireworks representing Italy.

The music was moving and energetic. One of my favourite pieces was the finale from the William Tell Overture by Gioachino Rossini. This section of the display included a lot of low-level fireworks, like the bright ones in the picture, which fired almost continuously and sounded like a herd of horses galloping along, which complemented the music perfectly.

The display ended with a staggering number of fireworks filling the sky with light. Very pretty, but virtually impossible to get a good picture of because there was so much light.

Saturday’s show is featuring the team from APOGEE Fireworks representing Canada, which I’m really looking forward to!
