Photographer's Note

Hi Everyone good to be back if only for a short time again. Will be visiting your galleries soonest.

This evening we had the our usual carnival which is held once a year (4th Nov) raising funds for the primary school and the school hosting the splendid array of fireworks. Offcourse as this is my very first attempt at firework/nightshot images I had to get myself and my gear over to my friends apartment just outside the school to position the 'gear' on the balcony and capture from a comfortable viewing point. This time of the year we have gale force winds which is probably every firework handlers worst nightmare. It certainly rained earlier today however the rain stayed away including the forceful winds the 'cape doctor'. I can honestly say taking these images have certainly proved to be a trying moment as I kept thinking the shutter speed is seriously too slow and every other image ended up black 'no image'. H/ever tks to TE, I remembered reading someone's gallery on trekearth who had taken a firework image and somehow I managed to capture quite a few at different heights. I had not realized I had captured this image which closely resembles (I thought) a 'flying dragon' flying from the 'fire' below.

I would like to hear your thoughts..and its good to be back!

I cropped from the left and right to give a vertical frame and added a white border. Image as is.

Shutter: 3.2, F/2.5, ISO100
