I may never be able to get there. So, I held my own burn instead.

(that;s the fireworks then blowing it up on the third one) I was sitting at the front and it knocked me back. Running right after to the man was the best experience of my life! Thanks to all at Burning man, I’ll be back next year. Report comment d says: September 8, 2011 at 3:30 pm rockin!

AMAZING. A night I wil NEVER forget. Report comment b dubs says: September 12, 2011 at 11:19 am actually the best fireworks ever were on friday night before the Trojan Horse burn, the fireworks display on saturday when the man burned paled in comparison Report comment susie says: September 16, 2011 at 11:31 pm F the trojan horse^ the man had the best fireworks of the whole event. Report comment westim says: September 17, 2011 at 7:39 am Incredible Burn. My God, I felt like a little kid seeing fireworks for the first time! So much more satisfying than 2010’s quick fall. God, I LOVE Burning Man. Report comment Michael Holden says: September 18, 2011 at 3:13 am Hey, Grant! I Love that gigapan. I’m glad you did it — I’ve always wanted to shoot the burn from above and outside the city at uber-high rez.
