Fireworks over the East River heralded the 125th birthday of the Brooklyn Bridge. The unique lighting of the bridge's arches, which featured changing colours, was only done for the few days of the birthday celebration.

Added to Cream of the Crop as my most interesting photo. I have also privately chosen this as my best photo taken in 2008, and the best photo I've ever posted on flickr.
