Last night was November 5th and here in England we have a tradition of preparing these elaborate and beautiful fireworks displays. I went to a massive display last night with a huge bonfire and an incredible 30 minute fireworks display. There were thousands of people all gathered in the same place to watch the show and the atmosphere was buzzing with anticipation and admiration.

In my photographs I have tried to capture the fireworks in all their beauty as well as the intense feeling of awe spread throughout the crowds. I have used a long shutter speed to make the camera manipulate the light to leave a lasting affect as fireworks do in real life; burned into our vision and still present after blinking and the real thing has vanished.
