With the pyro-boat holding position in the sea off the
beach, it was time to get the second and final night's displaying
underway. We took up positions on the pier, so had a unique
viewpoint with identical displays at ninety degrees to each
other! But we could only focus our cameras on one, so we
looked out to sea...
These are the pictures from the digital camera, click on
any thumbnail to view the full-size version:
Same display now, from the same place, but a different
way of looking at it. Pete B's 35mm SLR using traditional
film for some more rich, detailed pictures:
We concentrated our video efforts on Day 1,
so check out that section for our main pyro clip. On Day
2, we had a few technical difficulties (jammed tape!) so
decided to concentrate on the above shots. However, the
back-up camcorder was left running, and you can see brief
highlights below. The clip does not do the fireworks justice
however. Note that a second - closer - display was being
fired to the left of the camcorder, so the audio bears no
relation to what you are watching!
The cheers and very excited announcer on the video clip
above sums up the reaction to this double display. Quite
simply one of the best pyro shows I have seen yet, Dynamic
really pulled off something special here, well done!
We hope you have enjoyed this feature and in-depth look
at what is involved in a large event over two days. All
that remains is to say thanks once again to Nigel at Dynamic
for allowing us to come along, and the firing crews for
their help and cooperation.
