Since we "have" a (meanwhile even quite renowned) pyro technician in our village (his parents live here, they are the Counts von Bothmer and even OWN a fair bit of the land this village is on), we Lauenbrück-ians get regaled a free firework show every year both on 28 and 29 December. So once more I had to try my hands a photographing fireworks, more so since this offered the only bit of colours we are likely to get in these bleak days of a (all snowfree) winter. The first photo that I am going to show is a failure, technically, for on 28 I had accidentally set my camera to ISO 1600 (and could have kicked myself in the butt later when I noticed), so the "Flowers in the Sky" are overexposed ... but I still liked this particular "picture" that young Jan-Florian Graf von Bothmer managed to paint into the sky with his explosives. To me it feels like Passion Flower blossoms: 1. And some more "fire pictures" that resemble flowers or plants (to me they do) 2. Weeping Willow 3. Dahlia 4. Bush 5. Swamp grass in the wind 6. The Bouquet This fireworks show was quite exceptional. I have more - different "images".
