This was the first time in years I wasn't on the water for the Parade of Sail. I was trying to figure how to get shots from shore that afforded me as many background options as possible. On the water I could utilize the position of the sun and scenery being able to re-position my location 360 degrees. This time I choose my work location, the Beauport Hotel. I started off on the roof but found the lower deck the ideal shore location. I started with Saturday nights fireworks.
