Thanks guys, but it was just one of those cases of having a camera handy at the right time. :)

You have probably seen these scenes before as they are taken minutes of where I lived in my home town , but I never tire of the view when I visit took these with my phone a couple of days ago. If the transport links were a lot better I would probably still live there.

Well done Tony.

It was the Heritage Festival here over the weekend to celebrate Ironbridge Gorge being a UNESCO World Heritage site. So they lit up the bridge and let off a few fireworks right outside my house :D

Wow, Mad.

Those firework pictures are superb. Not a blur in sight.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Excellent Mad! Fireworks are a very, very difficult subject to capture. :D
