Photographer's Note

Here is the 4th photo from I publish from Fte des Lumires (The Festival of Lights).
This time I took this photo from the main spectacle that was running once an hour with illumination of few sites of Vieux Lyon (the old part) and with best view from the Sane River. During this show colors and light were changing all the time, and I was trying to catch it on the right moment to be able to get some strong colors together with the projection of light in the sky.
The two major building that you see here are Cathedrale Saint Jean and behind it Basilique de Fourviere.
This year the authorities estimate that 5 million people visited this festival, and believe me, it didnt make it easy to take some classic nice photos.
