Photographer's Note

I have been neglecting Trekearth for some time due to lack of time. But although the problem persists I wanted to share this image with you.
Last night Greece made it to the finals of the European Cup against the favourites, the Czech Republic. We of course feel sorry for the Czechs, but to see three to four hundred resident Greeks gather to celebrate in the Place d'Armes -which is the central square in Luxembourg - just before midnight, is a sight not quickly forgotten.
It is extremely difficult to take nightshots with a small handheld camera, outside - and with flash - of such moments. But for once I feel I have captured the joy of that particular evening for the entire Greek nation. Comments are welcome.
And I wanted to post this before the finals on Sunday.
