Thank you.
I originally climbed the mountain to photograph the Perseid meteor shower that day/night and was pleasantly surprised when I saw posters announcing the fireworks when driving through Gmunden. I bivouaced near the summit that night and was next to the summit cross when I took the picture of the festival.

The image I was actually after can be seen here:
