Symphony of Fire

The thunder has been rumbling for over an hour now. At first we thought it was the warm up to The Symphony of Fire, an annual fireworks performance that showcases three different countries' fireworks, over four nights. Tonight South Africa is set to perform. We realize the booming isn't stopping. Now there's lightning. Electrical storms are rare in Vancouver. And even rarer is what I'm seeing in the sky, and out my window.

This is nature's Symphony of Fire.

Sorry South Africa - you just can't compete.




































(It just occurred to me that as the world is ending, there will be those of us outside with our cameras)

The glow sure is fierce! Plus, since camera's can only capture so much, I'll bet that that light was much more impressive in person.

Hi. I came in through Carol's blog, intrigued by the title, fascinated by the description on the profile. Yes, I could sit here a while and chat with your offer.

Jennifer, you're right -- it was absolutely amazing and the camera didn't do it justice.

Dan, I hope you were out having some fun!

Lakeviewer, thanks so much for dropping by. I'll pop by you to visit a bit today too.

Sharon, I actually went outside in the pouring rain. It was brilliant and the lightning was incredible. I love storms.
