Fireworks






















Been meaning to post these up for a while, they were taken during a thunderstorm (obviously) between around 9.30 and 9.45pm in late July. This was not long after I got my digital camera and I was stood at the back door filming with a mixture of patience and excitement.Thanks to a friend of mine I've discovered at last how to convert the images into stills and into jpeg format.

Yes indeedy, but why?. Mind you, while I do enjoy a good thunderstorm, I was a bit worried at first because it was so near that the thunder was really rattling the windows at first. Exhilarating all the same.

Wow, love them! I've given you an award, come on over and get it.

Hahahah, hello ario! I wouldn't have thought there was much you could do with these actually since they're at such a low resolution: you're welcome, of course, all the same :)

I'm sure I could try and see if I could convert them again at a higher res, but whether I get round to it with these ones is another matter.

Hi dj, and thank you so much - two awards in one week! I will come over and pick it up accordingly. You're ever so kind :)

do you have a fancy expensive camera? I'm needing to buy a new camera and am open to advice.

(ps I am a little worried about ario's photo stealing addiction. we should get him help asap)

It's not fancy or expensive, http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000NOSC30/ref=nosim/coffeeuk23713-21

have a look. It's basic, cheaper than on the link I've given (if it works) and I've not had any problems with it so far.

Very good pixie! Shame I can't put the thunder sounds on as well really.

By the way, I think the sequence of the pictures I've posted, from the first to the last probably lasts about a tenth of a second.
