Photo of the Day (9.6.09)

Taking good photos of fireworks is no easy feat. The darkness, rapid movement and distance all conspire to confuse your average digital camera. As a result, many fireworks photos come out blurry and disappointing. All the more reason then, for selecting today’s fabulous fireworks shot from Flickr user Aseem01, who caught this colorful burst in Ota-ku, Japan. Fun fact: in Japan, they call fireworks hanabi.
