This World is On Fire: Best Fireworks of 2014

Posted in Inspiration, Photography • Posted on 4 Comments

It has always been a good tradition to start the new year with a bang. And when we use the words “new”, “year” and “bang” in one sentence, there is only one word that we could ever think of: Fireworks.

Fireworks, as Wikipedia puts it, are a class of explosive pyrotechnic devices that are used in many purposes: aesthetic, cultural or even religious. Often displayed in festivals, New Year celebrations and cultural events, fireworks work in four effects: light, smoke, noise and floating materials. Typically, colors like red, orange, yellow, blue, green, sliver and purple are used in fireworks.

In many major cultures, especially in China and the rest of Asia, fireworks are used in order to drive bad spirits away.

At the dawn of 2014 these babies flew and lit the sky with sonic-boom explosions that seemed to knocked at heaven’s door while entertaining and lighting up the eyes of all present under them. Now, let’s take one step back and admire the fireworks display that set 2014 ablaze!
