I know we had a fireworks thread last year but I can't find it so I'm starting a new one. I took these last night at my local display. They're not as good as the ones I took last year but still give some interesting effects. Anyone else take any ?
Yes but they ain't as good as yours! How does Fickle cope with fireworks? My dog is a complete wreck
We did some in the garden and she came and stood on the patio with the rest of us. She was fine, even with the rockets. However, she used to be a gun dog and is used to loud bangs & bright flashes so it was no bother at all for her.
The local display (where I took these pics) is about a 1 minute walk from my house. We left her at home and she was absolutely fine, even though it sounded like WW3 had broken out at one point.
My camera has a good "fireworks" setting on the "scene" button. It holds the shutter open for 2 seconds so you get the effects of the streaks etc. I really like taking them but I still don't think they're as nice as last year's ones.
I don't remember you posting any last year - wasn't that when you had your accident and hurt your ankle?
You're right, it was a year ago that I hurt my ankle (it's still not right, y'know) but that was the 2nd display I was going to see. I took some of the first display and after a bit of searching, here's a link to the thread.....
That was a great thread! I missed it last year so thanks for finding it FA
Yes good detective work FA, and I've 'bumped' it to make life a little easier! ;D

Are there not two Threads now for Fireworks - wonder if Spru can merge them
My dogs are fine with the fireworks - they never bother with them - when my Afghan was a puppy the breeder leaves a TV on so all the noises of the outside world ie cars revving, people screaming, bangs, crashes, etc etc are heard by them when they are babies
I always thought this a good idea
