Carrick‑on‑Shannon is not a big town. On the main road through the town, most of the traffic is just passing by on their way to elsewhere. Not so on this evening in June. There were no cars, and no‑one passing by.
People were on foot and had all gathered in the heart of the town. I had never seen so many people in one place in the town. They watched as the town was transformed into a show of light. This is my favourite photo of this year.
