Clagary Stamepde Centennial Fireworks

I went into Calgary last night to watch the Calgary Stampede Centennial "Light Up The City" Fireworks show. WOWZA,talk about awesome!! Five international scale 12 min. Firework displays occurring at the same time around the city,set to music;the largest and most sophisticated fireworks event ever produced in Canada. I've never seen anything like it,even the States' 4 of July events,which I was always in awe of,dimmed in comparison. I thought I'd share just a few shots,although they don't even come close to doing the show justice;one of those things you have to see to really grasp. Anyways,enjoy!

neat pictures! It's very hard to photograph fireworks and have it be successful.

I once saw a fireworks display in Japan, like 25 years ago. It was unlike anything I ever saw here. All kinds of things I have never seen here, like things that formed letters or images in the sky. And very odd sounds.

They also had shapes,like horses,cowboy hats,boots,ect. Along with lettering,but I wasn't fast enough with the camera.

Thanks! I have a Canon Powershot SX40 HS,and it has a pretty awesome fireworks setting.This setting is particularly amazing when you're on a tripod,which I didn't have with me, so wasn't sure how the shots would turn out,but I actually got some pretty decent ones just holding the camera..

I know,right? I thought they picked some pretty great music to sync it to. :)
