The opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games 2014 at Celtic Park in Glasgow was just fantastic to experience live. The atmosphere in the stadium was really electric and the weather incredible for Glasgow with evening temperatures in the high 20s.
Here are a selection of photographs from the ceremony itself. Things to look out for…!…dancing tunnocks teacakes, Rod Stewart serenading a billion viewers, the colourful dancers, athletes and Scottie dogs (!) and, of course, the Queen in Parkhead!
