Fireworks Over Jerusalem

"This photo was taken at Mount Herzl, Jerusalem, during the celebration of the 66th Independence Day of Israel," writes Your Shot member Dor Kedmi, who arrived at the location about an hour before the fireworks display started. "I was looking for the best angle to capture them. Fortunately, two soldiers stood in front of me and helped me a lot in capturing the moment."

Kedmi's picture recently appeared in the Your Shot Daily Dozen.
