The River of Light

fireworks 7 Nov 17

It’s great to see Liverpool do big fireworks displays on Bonfire Night again. Sure we’ve had stunning ones for cruise ship visits but I think it’s been a while since there was a bonfire night one.

I’m usually commissioned to photograph these events so it was nice to have the night off and enjoy it as a human. Of course I took a camera just in case.

It was a stunning display. My wife and I really enjoyed it. We loved that it was a big display in New Brighton so we could easily walk down the prom, watch the display, get food and then wander home. Great stuff. We didn’t see any of the bigger display by the Liverpool waterfront but that was fine. It’s nice to have a night off in your home town.

So despite being off duty I took a camera but felt like I failed to get my normal firework photos. Sure I could have taken a big setup but I wanted to relax. That meant my human side enjoyed the night. My photographer side was annoyed for taking a day off. Stupid brain.

Great display. Great use of New Brighton. Now if we could just get a good old fashioned bonfire on the beach that’d be ace.
