Brunel 150 Celebrations

I went down to Saltash in Cornwall over the weekend to photograph the steam train going over the Royal Albert Bridge (aka Brunel Bridge). Unfortunately, the steam train was cancelled at the last minute, although I didn’t find out until I’d waited a few hours for it… The fireworks in the evening, however, went ahead and they were some of the best fireworks I’d ever seen! It was also some of the most difficult photography as the fireworks were so intense that it was difficult not to over-expose. I was working with both my 5D and 5D Mark II using a cable release and infrared remote control. Below are a couple of the best. For more, see the special gallery.
