Comments - Terrific view of fireworks over the Kamo River in Kyoto. An explosion lights up the dark night sky, sending showers of red and yellow sparks falling. The bridge is crowded with viewers, and families stand on the shore at left to watch the summer display. A lovely scene with soft shading in the sky and shimmering reflections in the water below.
