all-japan fireworks competition (for summer)

i might be wrong, but i heard it’s going to be PLUS 3 again this afternoon in saskatoon. “PLUS 3”, everyone. i don’t remember the last time i saw a plus sign for saskatoon weather…

clearly, summer is here.

a couple days ago, it was -13 degrees. that’s a jump of 16 degrees. now i’m too hot.

to celebrate the beginning of summer in canada, there’s nothing better than fireworks. this video is from the omagari all-japan fireworks competition, held every year on the last saturday in august in omagari, akita prefecture. the fireworks are synchronized with music, and the timing is amazing. in one part, i can see swans appearing under the dim light of oboro-zuki (hazy moon). it’s just gorgeous, and the ending is spectacular!
