Fun with fireworks

Canada Day is always full of patriotic good times.

And the pinnacle, in Southern Ontario, at least, is the town fireworks display.

Acton has a fantastic fireworks show. I believe even the smallest towns in Ontario like to go all out for the first of July.

And what better way than a 30 minute choreographed display of pyrotechnics!

This year I experimented using my little Sony camera. You have to get the timing just right. You can’t snap the shot as the (firework?) is exploding. Rather you have to listen for the preemptive bellow of the cannon, count to 3 (or so), then snap the shutter right as it explodes. The camera must be held extremely still. I propped it on my knee holding it with both hands at a specific angle to try to get the steadiest shot.
