It’s summertime and there are fireworks all over the planet. They are truly magnificient.

In Montreal, Switzerland and Italy have already lit up the Saint-Lawrence River since June 17. Eight more performances are scheduled. So far, the weather has been in their favor.

Fireworks can make beautiful photos. Some believe them to be too difficult to take, but the universal law of photography is that if it can be seen it can be shot. We only need to learn how.

Many people watch the pretty lights, but are clueless that it is actually a competition and the lights walk hand in hand with a soundtrack. If you’ve never at La Ronde next to the place where the fireworks are launched, you should go. It’s a completely different feeling and you will actually be able to judge whether the performance was good or not. Well… that’s only good when it’s not raining.

    I disagree. Fireworks at La Ronde sure are nice, but if the wind is a little off, you’ll want to kill yourself. Those things that explode, well they have to come back down somehow, and you better pray it’s not in your face because last time i went, that’s what happened and let me tell you it ruined it.

    Going to see them at La Ronde is good, but make sure you’re in a good spot.

    The one thing that has been missing at La Ronde for years has been an intercom throughout the park and music could be heard anywhere.

    The whole point of being close to the fireworks is to listen to the music that comes with it.
