    Finally got a chance Saturday to get downtown and get some pictures of the famous Waterfire in Downtown Providence. Nightime photos are not my strong suit but I was glad to get some acceptable shots to show the ambience of the event. Enjoy the photos.

    C&C welcome

    The Lighter boat lights the fires in the braziers

    The event begins in the basin

    The rivers are alive with the light of the fires

  2. nice images Ray, challenging exposure. Didn't realize they were still doing it, thought it mostly a summer event.

    Thanks Chris,

    Next weekend is the last, I beleive. It's a big one for breast cancer awareness. You are right about challenging exposure. In addition, too crowded for a tripod or monopod so all were handheld. I was glad I got so many keepers.:biggrin:
