Fireworks Festival

Each year there is a festival on the hill across the valley from where we live, called the "Flammenden Sterne" or the "Stars on Fire" which is a big International Fireworks Festival.
We learnt from our neighbor, Jorg, that the Festival Committee invites a different country to put on their fireworks display each year. This year, the Committee chose New Zealand, Mexico and Germany. We went on Saturday night and saw the Mexico display. You can see the color of the Mexican National Flag above.
Zev set up his camera to take some incredible shots.
The fireworks show was choreographed with some beautiful music- think a mixture of classical with some sexy Latin beats. The booms and pops of color from the fireworks were perfectly timed to coincide with the cadence of the music.
Isn't that picture above with the silhouettes cool?
Hope you have a good week!
Love, The Yorks.
