Rockets Red Glare

Here is the shot from the grand finale of the incredible fireworks show late last Friday evening, capping off the week long 2012 Masters at Spruce Meadows.


As I have mentioned in previous uploads from this show, the atmosphere was just electric after what had already been quite an amazing evening, and this was truly a wonderful icing on the cake!


When I saw this particular burst, the very first thing that came into my head was the "rockets red glare" line from the American National Anthem (penned by Orson Scott Key), and knew it would make a perfect title for this capture!


As I have also previously mentioned, the show was set to a segment of the amazing The Planets suite by Gustav Holt.


Have a great Friday, my friends!
