T200 fireworks

Possibly the best fireworks display I have ever seen, and I was all the way over on the IOW!!! It must have been something else if any of you saw it from Pompy.

A few pics are attached.

The really bright one is the grand finale

Magnificent photos, Tim. Nobody, but nobody, does pomp and circumstance quite like the Brits

How the organisational skills and brilliance of those people responsible for a pageant of such magnitude and splendour contrast with the abject mediocrity of the scum that are our politicians It's enough to make you weep.

I agree. It's akin to an oil painting and the colours are stunning - you really ought to get that published somewhere
