Canada Day – fireworks in Kingston

1 Jul

Perfect weather conditions tonight for the fireworks at Confederation Basin. We sat on the rocks right at the waters edge and enjoyed an unobstructed view. Generally a clear sky with a gentle breeze to keep bugs away, a comfortable 20 degree temperature and as a bonus a full moon.

It was the best display that I’ve ever seen in Kingston; fired off from Point Frederick RMC, a National Historic location

In this picture the Martello tower is illuminated by the golden burst of light from the fireworks. Too bad I left my Fuji camera at home and had only my phone camera. While sitting on a large rock and using my knee as a camera tripod and hold steady I was able to get some acceptable pictures.

Huge pedestrian crowds but no problems, a bit of a traffic clearing issue but we waited for about 15 minutes and it had cleared.

This is my first attempt to record and post a video with my phone and I have given up after 3 tries to upload the video.
