Fireworks If you remember almost 2 weeks ago I was going to see the UK firework Championship which have been held in Plymouth for the past 20 years. Two evenings of fireworks, with 6 companies taking part, three on one night and three on the other. The first evening I somehow couldn’t take photos, well not that good. They were out of focus, the tripod more or something, although I did manage to get the odd one or two. The second evening was better. I’ve not fully looked through them all yet but I hope to have a few at least, but I guess there will always be next year. Hopefully, I’ll be able to take better photos, not sure what I was doing wrong this year. The photos are which was taken this year.

I have never had much luck trying to photograph fireworks. I don't seem to have the right camera for it. These look stunning.

Thank you, sorry you can't it's not always easy. Some point and shoot cameras do a good job but having a DSLR you do have more control on how you are taking the shot and then can still get it all wrong.Time and taking many photos until you do get it right. I think is the answer, I still often get it all wrong.

Two years ago, the World Pyrotechnics Championship was held here in Manila and my husband and I went there and for me it was one of the best dates we ever had. The night sky was overwhelmingly beautified by all the marvelous fireworks representing different countries. It was truly an amazing experience.
