Photo of the Month

Photo of the Month

 New Year's Eve fireworks

We were in London for the New-Year's Eve fireworks display and although NYE is actually in December these pictures were taken in the few minutes of the 1st of January and so they have been chosen as my picture of the month for January 2013. 11 or 12 minutes of fireworks ending with what simply looked like the sky on fire. With so much smoke it's difficult to get a good clear shot, this is one of my best and most colourful. You had to be there to experience it - the photo does very little justice to the noise, light and smoke.

This is taken from the shelter of the bus-stop on the east-side of York Road at 51 degrees 30 11.03N 0 degrees 6 56.67W where we stood for around 4 hours. Madness! But at least it was just a short walk back to the Premier Inn on Belvedere Road, just under the London Eye seen in this shot.
