Went back to my home town in the Philippines. I was flying in the park one Sunday morning when suddenly people had become really interested with my drone. Looking at this picture, I realized how happy my drone makes of these people.

In fact, this is the 100th anniversary of one of the two biggest football teams in Bulgaria. After a special game with the legendary Italians from Lazio; the came for the big firework display came up. Along with it, the public was invited to fire up everything that they had… and all together produced this amazing, spectacular image. Wow!
