Pictures of fireworks seem to be an annual part of my blog, due to the proximity of our house to the local football ground where the council-run 'extravaganza' (their description, not mine) takes place around this time each year.
This year, the show seemed to be shorter than ever, probably due to all the council cuts and the exorbitant cost of putting on a display. However, I can't grumble because I got a free show.
Unfortunately, the art of taking photos of fireworks is one that eludes me somewhat - just after I pressed the button, there always seemed to be much more beautiful colours and shapes. However, the photos above give some idea - my favourite is the second one.
