Note to self, resting your eyes for “just a minute” while doing a Blogathon can turn into 45 minutes. Since I’m a little late getting this post out I’m going toss in this older photo from Dave in honor of last night’s fireworks.

This image was taken from Cypress – a unique alternative viewing area for the Celebration of Light. Vancouver Police are calling last night’s display from the United States a success as they were less busy than usual, only making seven arrests all night.

    I’ve watched from Cypress. It’s not as busy obviously as English Bay and does give you a unique view of the fireworks.

    Dave did take a pretty amazing photo! Just looking over the images properties for being a digital zoomed image in the night I’m really impressed!

    @tyler: you’re right; that 15-second exposure is impressive.

    On flickr, there are some pretty shots of last night’s U.S’ kablooie …

    I saw the fireworks from MJ’s. I can’t believe I was actually awake after more than 40 hours (and I can’t believe YOU are still awake!)
