Fireworks over the Cascade Falls

Memorial Day FireworksMemorial Day FireworksThe opening explosives at the end of the "Star Spangled Banner" created this beautiful display.                 

                    This photo doesn't really need a description. I see a lighted man-made waterfall (New LED lights) complete with lighted fountains and an array of fireworks that really bring in every detail around the area. The night is the Saturday before Memorial Day. Before the sun set, and the light faded, a band played at the base of the falls. Rock n Roll favorites and patriotic songs were performed. They engaged the crowd that gathered to 1) remember our veterans and those that have willingly given their lives so that we can enjoy the freedom we have today, and 2) to welcome in the warmer weather. 

 

                   It was a beautiful evening, but as the sun dipped out of sight, the "warmer weather" went with it. Overall, it was tolerable, but the coolness was really making itself known. Darkness crept in and an announcement was made that the singing of our National Anthem was about to be sung. Everyone stood and men removed their hats. Some of the crowd sang with the performer, others stood with their hands over their hearts. Everyone stared at the flag. "...and the home...of the....Braaaaaave!

 

                   Barely a moment of silence and the fireworks began. This display sprayed straight up and then fanned back and forth. It continued for about 30 seconds longer than I allowed my camera to capture the opening. It was a brilliant display that resulted in a photo that captured a lot of attention. Sometimes, so many fireworks go off at the same time that the details are lost in the blur. this photo really brought out the detail of the display, and I'm grateful that so many really appreciated it. :)
