Fireworks and rushing around.

So far, fireworks season has gone really well. I had planned to write a proper post about everything I've been up to, but between fireworks and the day job I'm simply too busy right now. Instead, for now I'll have to content myself with a few pictures that I snapped over the weekend...

Three vans loaded up and ready for the drive to Portsmouth.

Rigging the shell tubes on the barges at Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth.
A snapshot of the show on Friday night (two barges in the middle of the harbour).

A few of the shell racks - my vague attempt to document some of the kit we travel with.

Rigging at Kenilworth Castle.
A slightly blurry side view of the show at Kenilworth Castle.
I wasn't firing on Bonfire Night itself (Tuesday) because I was needed at work, but I'll be back out on Saturday on another fabulous fireworks show.

When did you last see fireworks?

To all firers out there - stay safe this season.

I wondered how it has been going for you...

I last saw fireworks on July 1st which is Canada Day. Seems I have heard some since... perhaps Hallowe'en?

You are a pyrotechnician? So cool! I think I last saw fireworks on the 4th of July.

Might well be Halloween - we do a few Halloween fireworks shows. Or maybe a few British nationals celebrating the 5th?

I like to stay busy and fireworks definitely helps with that! Plus they are fab :)
