The Calm Before the Firestorm

By redhed17  
Here's another one from the British Fireworks Championships 2006 in South port, UK. This was from before the main displays, when they were showing the different types of fireworks. So there is still a bit of colour in the sky, and it is one solitary firework.

Thanks for the kind comments. Smile

I have another pic from the fireworks championships in my gallery, which looks quite different with a dark sky and more fireworks going off.

I like the simplicity of this one though.

Thanks for the comment Nick.

Yes, now is the time to start planning where is the best place to record Bonfire Night, and the equipment, setup, and method you intend to use.

I certainly am from Liverpool Wendy, thanks.

This was from Sunday Paul, as you can see, I was inspired by your position for you pics. Wink

I did actually have a copyright on that spot, but as I see from your portfolio shot, you're wearing the right coloured top ... so I can wave my penalty fee LOL

I wasn't going to reply to you at 1st Paul because you're the wrong side of the river, but I thought I should because of the shirt. Wink lol

I went on Saturday and Sunday to the fireworks, and Sunday had the calmest water on the marina I have ever seen.
