Happy New Year 2019

By SunPrints      
On the 1st of January 2000, I saw an image of the London fireworks display not unlike this one of the front pages of one of the newspapers and it has stuck in my head ever since. 19 years later I was able to get my own version. I've shot the London Fireworks display from a few good locations now and it has always been spectacular. But NOTHING compares to being front and center and being engulfed in the light from the most awesome visual spectacle I have ever witnessed. For me, this is a bucket list shot well and truly ticked. And I have a fair few images that I will be sharing in due course. I could not have gotten this image without the support and help from a great many number of people, to whom I owe a massive thank you. Hasselblad Vanguard Photo UK and as always Titanium Fireworks Ltd for putting on the show. Happy New year everyone. I hope 2019 brings you much love and happiness.

Spectacular and awesome shot. Your long wait has been rewarded. Perhaps the best firework image I have ever seen.
For now I can only give you a vote as I have already used my awards. But will award it tomorrow for sure
Superb image.

Have just taken a look. They are excellent but I see what you mean about front and centre where you can get right in amongst it. Will be on the lookout for more from this viewpoint. Grin

We watched it on the television and agreed this year's display was the best we'd seen - your photo has captured that greatness brilliantly!
