New Brighton Guy Fawkes 2015

This years Guy Fawkes fireworks spectacular celebration had the Back to the Future theme. Normally I go down to the beach and shoot freehand, but this year I thought to go try a time-lapse from Mount Pleasant drive. To my surprise I was not the only bloke up there with a camera. However traffic was much better once it was all over.

The time-lapse did not go so well, but I could salvage one frame
