New Year Fireworks 2014

Well, the city budget must have been tight this year. Because after standing for 5 hours, squashed in a crowd like a tinned sardine and battered by wind and rain, we only got a measly 10 minute display. Nothing at all like the last time I came to see the fireworks. Whereas last time I stood along the Embankment in front of the London Eye, this time I wanted to include Queen Elizabeth Tower (often incorrectly called Big Ben, which is in fact the name of the bell inside the tower) in the shots.Not a great selection below, but reflecting a less than great display. I used mainly my Nikon D600 with 50mm F/1.8G, but also took the Olympus EM-5 with Panny 14mm F/2.5 out of my pocket for a few shots. Hope you had a better display where you were. Happy 2014!

You just cannot resist the punishment Alpha Lol :-)
Lovely set and big well done on the exposure.... not always easy on the clock face.

Happy New Year my friend.

Same to you buddy! Hope it's a good one! :)

Well, despite the brevity of the display, you got some stunning shots out of it! Had no idea that Big Ben is just the name of the bell inside the tower--thanks for that tidbit!
