ok, with powerlines and trees, and a glimpse of the star on the mountain

First time I attempted firework photos, was happy, except for everything in my line of site, next year I will make it to the roof, and shoot from there. :)

I part owned/ran a Fireworks Company doing big displays for about 10 years, folded it in 2000 after the wet millenium fiasco we had. Howling gale on the night and we were out on a barge in the harbour when my idiot accomplice brought the firing computer out in the wet and it fired about 10 shots then died. I mad him hand fire the rest from inside the mortar rings where the slave was mounted using a battery on the output plugs. Haven't seen him since for some reason....think his ears are still ringing.

Got/had lotsa pix but all on film and I ain't gonna scan that lot to find a goodie or two. All packed away downstairs somewhere, shifted too many houses to dig that lot out.

Love GP911's water reflection shot.
Maxx-7D - nice burst shots, wish the lines and poles weren't there.
