    Fireworks Championships - Plymouth 2019

    SWMBO & I treated ourselves to a day or two in Plymouth, to co-incide with the Fireworks Championships.

    We were blessed with reasonable weather, although a little windy (before the skies opened on Friday!).

    There were 6 companies competing, but one failed to produce a display due to a truculent computer throwing a hissy fit.

    At first, I thought the small vessels (full of beer-swillers) were going to be a PITA, but actually they proved useful, in that they give some sense of scale - these were BIG fireworks - being fired just over 500 metres away from where we were watching.

    A mixture of images from the entrants below.

    Beautifully captured John.

    Ever since a child I have been enchanted by fireworks and your images are showing the best of the best. I look forward to seeing some more.

                Great shots John, not been to the fireworks for years now. My Godson got a flat up on the Hoe, that looks right across to the Breakwater.

                        A bit late to this thread
                        What excellent set of firework display images, which has captured the essence of firework displays ie big, bright and magical.
