I had been taking a number of pictures of the fireworks at the end of the Canada Summer Games here in Winnipeg. Normally fireworks in my area of the city are not visible from my apartment but these particular ones were.

Not being satisfied with just taking a picture of the fireworks I thought I would play around with one of them after I had converted it to bw. I liked the illusion of the strands of exploding fireworks as the hairy legs of some giant spider emerging from the water.

Winnipeg, Manitoba was the host for the Canada Summer Games July 28 and August 13, 2017. Featuring 16 sports, over 250 events and a major cultural festival, the 2017 Canada Games welcomed over 4000 athletes and coaches and more than 20,000 visitors.

The Canada Games are this countries largest multi sport event for young athletes and in 2017 celebrated their 50th anniversary and Canadian 150th birthday.
