Bàozhú (Firecracker)

ISO 320 | 1/250sec | f/5.6 | 135mm | EOS 60D 

A photo taken during the recently concluded “Bacolaodiat Festival”, a Chinese New Year Festival, here in Bacolod City, Philippines. In the photo is a firecracker being readied for the magical fireworks display at night.  A part of a Photo Contest in which I joined, along with fellow Canon users throughout the entire afternoon of February 8.
