Week 27 : Movement.

Week 27 : Movement. 20120701 NIKON D40 9163 920x611

This photo was taken on a recent family trip to Niagara Falls, Ontario. MY wife and I had always wanted to vacation with her extended family but the timing never worked. Bhavana’s brother-in-law persevered and took care of most (all?) of the logistics. We chose the long “freedom” vacation week arriving in Niagara on July 1st which also happens to be Canada Day. The park area, Queen Victoria Park, overlooking the falls was quite crowded given the holiday weekend but we did manage to squeeze in a few family photos before dinner and then headed outside to find a spot on the grass. The fireworks started around 10PM. Thousands of people gathered in Queen Victoria Park for the July 1st, Canada Day, fireworks. Families and friends spread out across the lawns. I wanted to show the peaceful yet dynamic nature of the experience so I chose my aperture and went for a four-second exposure.

    Very nice shot – I like the “phantom” effect of your exposure on the moving people!
