Fireworks Party 2005
On 6 November 2005, Paul (aka Mr Goldenpants) laid on his annual fireworks show at his house. Like last year, we were as far back as we could get... about six metres... and happily unlike last year, these fireworks were very well anchored and all went into the sky away from the spectators!

It was a fabulous show as ever. If all you want is the finale, please click to view (87Mb Mpeg). It's 77 seconds long.

I took my camera as I'd never photographed fireworks before and wanted to learn how to use the manual settings. This guide gave me some useful starting points, and I was away!

Instead of my usual commentary, I have put a black background for the fireworks themselves, as I feel this shows them off best. So just a few comments here and there!

This shot shows fireworks being launched. Even the flame on the ground was as high as the fence! You may also notice two of the lanterns have lost their covers...

This is my favourite shot, full of colour and smoke.

Four gorgeous and smiley faces... [don't know who, sorry], David, Dan and Natasha.

Thanks to Paul for hosting an amazing night of fireworks! We hope you liked the Bison Vodka that we brought you!
