Fireworks at Rendezvous 2012

The annual Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous just took place in Whitehorse and a Saturday night fireworks display has become a regular feature of the festival. I have photographed this in the past ... see the March 5th, 2010 Feature Photo. This year, to provide context to my images I chose a vantage point overlooking part of the main Rendezvous venue of Shipyards Park. The long exposure captured several of the pyrotechnic bursts and built up enough exposure of the foreground to enable me to balance it nicely with the fireworks using the tonal controls in Adobe Lightroom.
