Very nice catch at the best moment.

Thanks for watching my new uploads! :)

This are only one of ther first 'explodes'. Will be few more shoots in my uploads in next days.

I was equipped with trippod, but not have good chances to use it because not expected such big popularity and crowded bridge. My light trippod was not enough high to capture over heads, I just used it as ballaste or as counterweight to stabilize image. After every blast crowd scream a loud along (there was many drunk youngsters) and was not easy for stable standing. :D

I had similar problems at the firework of our national holiday. And I was positioned more far away from it. So I made a "summary" of a few of the effects and composed together with PhotoShop --> watch here
