Thanks everyone:) and your right Luke it was perfect timing. I didn't know there would be any that night there was a second lot but I was too late for them.

@ toby: I think most new cameras have that mode you need a tripod with it of course.

@ EG: It was a great night, and very colourful.

Nicely done, the shape of the wall and the fireworks complement each other.
