Watching totally unexpected fireworks directly out of my window...

Watching totally unexpected fireworks directly out of my window...

My home - Nyon (Switzerland)

I know it and I fully agree with you, the quality of this photo is less than average, nevertheless it documents a little moment of happiness.
I was just reading in my living room and I heard sudden explosions of fireworks and I had simply to stay at my windows looking at them over the lake.
Fireworks speak to the child who always exists in a hidden corner of every one of us, probably itís for this reason all the people of all ages like them.
I have not any idea about the reasons for those fireworks; there was nothing to celebrate in any special way on that date.
So their unexpected display filled me with amused happiness.
I grasped one of my cameras and I put some settings which should have more or less worked and I tried to take a photo, just for the pleasure to freeze the moment.
This is the entire little story.

Another gem of an example of little unexpected happy surprises....a joy I too have shared from my window a few times...although I know of some people who would be frightened by it! A very lovely quick capture.
