Fireworks or deep space photography

I love it how people go crazy for fireworks, I really, really, really wanted to take pictures of them with iphone and it so doesn’t work. Too fast, too far and generally beyond the capabilities of 3gs camera.

I was trying to take so many pics too quickly that I did end up with some great accidental shots – think these are due to shutter not opening properly so there is a line splitting the shots and looks almost like deep space photography.

This photo could so easily be mistaken for a red giant methinks:

And this is what I think they refer to as a superflare star – according to wikipedia only nine superflare stars have been spotted, lucky me to have created the tenth!

 

 

I loved the sky last night too:

Glowing red and full of smoke.

How much fun can you have with neighbourhood fireworks

The annual firework extravaganza weekend and while nothing will ever come close to the crazy firework display by the Cliff Society in Lewes, one can have a lot of fun just by looking at a bathroom window!

I was looking for a local display, there wasn’t one.  That is, until our neighbours started their own display. By the time I realised what was going on, I was too scared to open the window so ended up with these:

Now hoping that they haven’t made a hole in the roof…
