We went to a firework display recently. As is our way, we arrived late to the display, but nothing had started yet.
We found an empty spot, climbed a fence, got a good view, set up the camera, and were ready to go. The countdown began. 3, 2, 1… Whoosh.
The first fireworks went up. We tried to get some pictures, but nothing really worked. The lenses weren’t really capable of what we wanted from them given the dark, and the exposure time and things like that.
So, we enjoyed the fireworks instead. Except, when we turned our attention to the actual display, we realised it was absolutely rubbish.
It only lasted about five minutes, and there were very few exciting fireworks, and just some regular ones. It was most disappointing.
