Nowadays, with cameras everywhere, it is a rare occasion if you look at one of your pictures, and get a feeling that you have not seen something like this before.
But this one gave me that sensation. This is from Independence Day fireworks at Laukontori square in Tampere. Red and green sparkles of fireworks mix with falling snowflakes that are brought visible with flash.
New Year coming, there are fireworks at many places. Get your cameras ready!

amazing mixture of fireworks and snow flakes! Hard to tell one from the other:) The hands with the phone in the foreground convey the atmosphere of overall excitement perfectly. Great capture!
Have a great time in the New Year!

A very good effect with all the stars, mixed with snowflakes. You have included enough of the audience here for us to feel included in the celebrations. "Congratulations with the day", as the Norwegians say on May 17!
Happy New Year

Happy New Year to you, I hope 2013 brings you everything you wish for! You're right, this is a rare and beautiful scene. THe effect of the snowflakes on the fireworks is truly magical and I like how you included a little bit of the crowd enjoying the spectacle, it gives us context and completes the story for us.
