As much fun as they are to watch, fireworks are equally as challenging to photograph. While people on the Crimean bridge were yelling “Victory” and “Russia”, I tried to catch an interesting moment during quite long fireworks in honor of 65th anniversary from the Great Victory in WWII. This probably my best shot from few dozens of pictures that I took during ten minutes.

The line the white bursts of fireworks raised right over the Moscow Kremlin (behind illuminated buildings can be distinguished the white bell tower of Ivan the Great with gilded dome located on the grounds of the Kremlin.
