Planting A Seed

I have to confess when I first read the brief for the latest AM3 theme my initial thoughts were to let this one pass.

A couple of days later I was out tidying up in my garden and burning dead wood etc. on a bonfire, when I heard lots laughing and cheering from the village hall and football field that backs onto my garden - I opened my garden gate to find the cheers were marking the start of a firework display for a private party at the hall. Instinctively I pulled out my camera phone (no time to retrieve my Nikon) and this post is one of the resulting images.

The above photo was tweaked in photoshop to remove noise and jpeg artefacts from the black areas and is submitted to the AM3 "Planting A Seed" theme.

In a sense this "seed" was sown by the photo and not by an idea but I still feel it remains valid as it reminded me that I have never previously tried to photograph a pyrotechnic display. As we are rapidly approaching the UK firework season (5th Nov), this would be a project I would to love to explore.
