And the show is over for this time…
I found on New Year’s Eve that for photographing fireworks it’s not always what you see that adds the most to the overall effect – sometimes the best effect is what is not illuminated.
Yes, we do fire our own fireworks here in Denmark.
Looks like an abstract painting, doesn’t it?
A single rocket framed by dark trees.
It’s up to your imagination to decide what came before these sparks.
Sinister and bright at the same time…
Fireworks can appear so overwhelming when it all goes off at once at midnight on New Year’s Eve, making it almost as bright as daylight. Sometimes it easier to see the beauty in fragments.
This aftermath of the previous explosion looks almost like fireflies. Big ones, I admit…
In a way fireworks is very emotional. We react emotionally both to the beauty and sometimes the danger (at least in Denmark where you can fire your own).
