When the city doesn’t plan the fireworks for its citizens, the citizens organize the fireworks for the city!
From the ETH hill down to lake side …
From Hoenggerberg down to the Limmat river …
Nobody sleeps by the shores of lake Zurich tonight!
Storms of fire and smoke
as high as the Prime Tower embrace the city to celebrate the founding of the Swiss Confederation on the 1st of August 1291.
Happy bday Switzerland! Pictures shot from the terrace of Die Waid restaurant with Nikon D800, Nikon 50 mm and Manfrotto tripod.
