Birthday firework

By Pogs
Firework taken yesterday (on my birthday Smile) at Southport. It was the part of the display for the British musical firework championships. The display was spectacular and I apologise for the poor quality of the shot but it was my first time trying to capture a firework and it is very difficult.

I really like this one, the colours are lovely and the reflection. Curiosity has the better of me - what is that shape on the opposite bank? I viewed large and still couldn't make it out!
I hope you had a lovely birthday - fancy them putting on fireworks for you!!

Thanks everyone I really didn't expect this shot to do so well. Karen it was a stand for 2 heart shaped fireworks which were part of the finale.

Well done Paula, and yes it is very hard to take good pic's of fireworks. I saw loads of displays while in Sorrento, September is a great time of year for them over there. And how dare I be on Hol's on your birthday. Well congrat's anyway, you look amazing for 27 . All best wishes,
