Fireworks in Marseille - 14 July 2014

Here's my postcard of the fireworks in Marseille last night to celebrate Bastille Day. Lots of static lights to show rays in the smoke and the Palace du Pharo was illuminated in the French colours of red, white and blue.

Half a million pounds worth of fireworks went up in smoke in half and hour!

The fireworks were launched from pontoons in the Vieux Port and from the forts around the harbour. Also from a wire suspended across the water.
