Roman candles


The fire and the smoke throws the bridge over the lake into silhouette as roman candles send their plumes of fire high above the lake during the British Musical Fireworks display

I wonder what music was playing at the time Les.
Les Auld: I do remember the William Tell Overture at about the time these were going off. Thanks for the comment Chad.
This is another great firework pic Les
Les Auld: Thanks Bill, you just have to stand there and press the button Bill, sooner or later a good one will come along. Thanks for the comment.

Very impressive, Les. I like the composition with the way they fan out from the bottom left; nicely done.
Les Auld: Thanks for the comment Alan, glad you like it.

Very dramatic, and being able to see the bridge puts it all in context.
Les Auld: It certainly does help Mike, thanks for the comment.
Great shot Les.
Les Auld: Thanks Michael smile
Yep..a great shot Les..Nice timing.
Les Auld: Continuous shooting is a great aid though Ron, thanks for the comment.
Excllent shot Les, another reason for, presumably, going out with the tripod.
Les Auld: No tripod Brian, not enough room with the crowds so I use a monopod jammed tight against the railings at the edge of the lake. Thanks for the comment.
I like the colours in this shot
and the person stood on the bridge. very nice.
Les Auld: The bridge does add to the effect of the fireworks Linda, thanks for the comment.
Very nice shot Les.
Les Auld: Thanks Bernie it seemed to work ok.

A stunning display - I love the bluish light in the distance. Well captured.
