|GRAND FEU D’ARTIFICE DES FÊTES DE GENÈVE|
The Grand Fireworks Display of the Geneva Festival - Saturday 10 August, 2013 10pm
I found a spot on the Pont de Bergues which spans the Rhone river and connects the Ile Rousseau with the mainland. Feeling a bit claustrophobic I decided to pack things up and find another location. I walked over to the Square de Alps, a small park along the water and found a place to sit on the grass and shot these images from there.
Proceedings were opened by the Portuguese company Grupo LUSO Pirotecnia de Almada with a journey through traditional and contemporary music characteristic of Portugal. The second half was staged by the Pyrostars de Genève company on the theme “Conquests and Conquerors’’.
