So this is part of Grand Illumination at Colonial Williamsburg. Normally, you can actually see the Governor's Palace during the fireworks (see a sample here from the Colonial Williamsburg page)

However, it was a really rainy, drizzly, cold night, and the smoke didn't clear, so it gave everything a surreal feeling to it. I really liked this shot. Someone had made the comment of perhaps cropping out the photographers, but I actually really liked them. It was like someone photographing the gates of Hell. :)

This was an outtake that I really liked, as well, and almost was entered:


taken during the Christmas parade. This was also another option:


Ja-9 thought I should enter that one, just because of the squirrel on the top. :)

Thanks for the comments!

Great shot! I would try to refine it by cropping out the photographers in the lower right corner.
