For November, Bonfire Night which is also known as Guy Fawkes Night is celebrated on the 5th November in the United Kingdom. Look up Guy Fawkes Night in your search engine to get more information. On that night or the weekend fireworks are set off by people as part of the celebration. This is a good time to capture images of the night sky and the activities of people with their fireworks. Due to COVID19 restrictions major firework events were cancelled.
Individual users were still allowed to purchase fireworks so this was a good time to capture the event from start to finish. The sounds and the lights are quite enjoyable if you handle the fireworks carefully.
I decided to capture images of a spider by using the light from a sparkler. For the capture of these images I decided that the quality of each image was not much of an issue. All of the images were captured as a video and software used on a computer to select individual frames. Each frame was 2 megapixels in size and the camera was capturing frames at 60 frames per second.
I experimented with the sparklers and several rockets before the main night.
Each firework that was set off left a haze of smoke. This was not an issue because each firework was extremely bright. Three videos have been included of the night so that the sound and vision can be experienced. Here are the images of the night.
It was an enjoyable night and all of the children in the neighbourhood saw it through their windows.
