Enjoy a calendar – full…

or more in the fireworks series…

The start of the annual fireworks concert under the landmark ramparts of Edinburgh Castle perched on a volcanic rock above the city.

Amongt the picnicers thronging the public gardens below my first attempts at fireworks meant fumbling in the dark with unfamiliar settings (like M for mad) and getting disoriented still further by an upended camera so all the buttons were in the wrong places… LOL .. then it didnt help when my remote died after 3 test clicks..teehee..

So critique hugely welcome.. and excuses above!
