Tonight in Britain the skies will be full of smoke as people set off their firework displays...we set ours off last night as it was a dry night...one never knows living in the UK when that might happen again! :o) So armed with hot chocolate, and of course my camera we set off into the garden. I was keen to have a go at light painting with the sparklers and to capture the trails from the fireworks. All of the following pictures were taken on long exposure night setting for a 5 second exposure time...and yes, my camera was on its little tripod and I used a 2 sec timer to reduce camera shake. It is so easy now with digital cameras to have a play and get instant results.
