We went to the park to hear the Colorado Springs Symphony play and watch the fireworks. They always start the fireworks with the 1812 overture complete with cannons. I got lots of fireworks pics and some make neat abstracts. I only included one which I call "The Palm". I thought this was a colorful picture. These are the howitzers (I think they're howitzers) that they used in the 1812 overture. Here is one going off. You can see the light sticks of the soldiers and some minor fireworks over the trees. I had paper stuffed in my ears but the impact of this concussion knocked me back slightly and with about 20 of these going off I was a little dazed for several minutes. The impact of the shockwave to my body actually hurt a little. I guess this means I'm a crazy photographer huh?
