Rocket by Curtle Rocket by Curtle
A friend brought his remaining fireworks and I got a chance to try and photograph it because the booze didn't allow me do that on new years eve. ;P

We put it in a pile of sand (clever, eh?) and placed so it would explove above the lake. Then we lit it and ran. And it did explode right above the water. :aww:

Here's one that did not take off. :oops:
Luckily, it did not harm the camera or any people.

This is a great picture. The firework shooting into the sky leads the eye to end result of the firework. Nice (:

Thanks. I was surprised the composition came out this good as you can't know exactly where the rocket will go.
It would've been perfect if it exploded a little higher though. :)
