On the second night of my holiday ( Saturday). Barry drove me to Peterborough on his friend's directions. Crawled for what seemed miles before we found a parking space . then we had to go through a gate and up a long long track . Then we saw someone in the dark and asked if it was the right way to the firework display and they replied they hoped so . I had my Camera bag and my stick , poor Barry carried all his gear and two hefty tripods. Suddenly we came upon this lake and only a few people standing about . The majority must have turned left when we turned right . We found a space , set up our tripods , Camera set to 100 ISO 5" @f16 cable release and BANG !! at 8pm. sharp it started . Such explosions of colour I kept forgetting to take the pictures. I did squeal with delight . I've never seen anything so stupendous 'cept for London .Hope you enjoy . I certainly did .xx

This is a super shot - the reflection is the obvious draw, but I love the trees silhouetted against the sparks. Really attractive.

You were right Mave - superb!

The reflection and spread of the display works so well, looks sort of like a reptiles eye...

Have you added anything...?
