photoblog image Celebration

Celebration

100 with a bang!

100 image in 100 days was more difficult than I thought when I started this photoblog, but I made it so an explosion of colour to celebrate.

The British Musical Fireworks Championships are held in Southport every year in front of the Marine Lake and thousands of people turn up to watch. There is no room for a tripod amongst the crowds but a monopod jammed against the railings seems to work ok. This image is from the fianl seconds of the winning display by Festival Fireworks.
