Exploring Light Painting with Fireworks at Datchet Cricket Club
Every year in November a bonfire and fireworks spectacle takes place at the cricket club in Datchet, a quaint Thames-side village located just outside Windsor in Berkshire, England. Contrary to my previous fireworks photography, I went for a different approach this time which resulted in a rather abstract and surreal light painting.
As darkness fell, the atmosphere came alive with bursts of vibrant colors. The air was filled with the crackling sounds of fireworks and the light streaks painting intricate patterns across the sky.
The centerpiece of the event was a roaring bonfire that added much-needed warmth and a captivating glow to the night and embraced everyone around it.
