100% at ISO 800 20D

Jonny Depp's 153 foot creation often called the Tower of Power Launched the "Good Doctor's" ashes over 300 feet into the air. More than a week after Hunter S. Thompson's ashes were fired into the air via fireworks, the light from the peyote button lights up the valley. The resulting ISO 800 file is simply magical. I have been working on this story for weeks now, the majority of the images I will keep out of public domain, but this one, I just had to share.

Please view it in the slightly larger version as it does not show the strange compression artifacts.

Fear and Loathing still one of the most influential books I've read...

Excellent homage to the man - really glad you posted this. Go Gonzo.
