SKYWATCH FRIDAY



Hier, c'était l'ouverture officielle des Fêtes du 400ème Anniversaire de la Ville de Québec. Un grandiose feu d'artifice était présenté sur le fleuve St-Laurent. Mais c'était très tard, vers 23:30hrs. J'étais vraiment trop fatiguée pour y aller. Mais en attendant les explosions, j'ai pu voir quelques feux de mon balcon. Les photos sont un peu floues... Mais bon.... C'est mieux que rien...

Yesterday was the official opening of the Festivities for the 400th Anniversary of Quebec City. Some grandiose fireworks had been programmed on the St-Lawrence River. But as it was rather late, at 23:30hours, I was too tired to go and stayed home. Earing the big bangs, I went on my balcony and manage to see some fireworks! The pics are a little fuzzy but well.... it's better than nothing...

I think your fireworks photos are great! Happy Anniversary, Quebec City! (a lovely place; I had the pleasure of a brief visit many years ago.)

Well, what a delight, look who I ran into over here on Sky Watch Friday -- my old friend...

Great fireworks -- I've got a shot of them on my site today, so when you have time stop on by and say hello.

And don't make yourself a stranger over at Web-Pix -- we need you now more than ever because Josie has moved on...

All the best to you. Don.

Thank you, Pat! Quebec is a nice place to visit for many days, you know!!! ;o)

HELLO DON!!! Happy to see you! You're header is magnifiscent!!! My fireworks look so... ordinary beside yours! For Web-Pix.... I moved on many months ago myself. I don't have much time anymore even if I visit from time to time. but I will try to visit your blog more often! :)

Now this is some bright sky Merlin Princesse which reminds me I should light that Roman candle now! Don't you just love Skywatch Friday?

These are wonderful! I think the slight blurring adds a nice touch.

Caroline a dit…

These are lovely photos of fireworks - I especially like the top one as it gives them a context.

Hope you are feeling full of beans today!

Fantastic photos to celebrate a birthday.

Seulement la vraie Princesse Merlin pourrait nous montrer toutes ces beautés
(hope the French came out well).

merlinprincesse a dit…

Yes, CES! I love Skywatch Friday. It makes us remember to look UP... I have the tendency to always look DOWN... :)

Thank you Aravis... When I learned photo, many many years ago, blurred pics were bad pics. When I came digital, I learned that blurred pics can sometimes be very nice, so now, I keep all pics in file.... :)

Happy belated Fourth of July, Tony! Must have been something in NY! :)

I'M ONLY 115, Anon!!!! };-} Thanks for the nice comment! :)

Hello Caroline! We are having a very nice day and I love your expression!!!! I will try to feel full of (jelly)beans! :))))

Your French is perfect, Quint! Except for the tradution of my name... Hheheheh. I'm Merlinprincesse in all languages! Those are the names of my cats! :)
