This was taken as a test photograph. I was testing my camera on a long exposure and checking my manual focus was giving me a sharp image, waiting for the sun to go down and for the International Firework Competition to start. In my opinion this is probably my favorite “happy accident” photograph that I have put on this website. I would love to do more night photography around Blackpool, not just of the fireworks but also the Illuminations, and more of the tower and the three piers. I believe dusk is the best time to photograph a lot of things but certainly the best time of day when it comes to the town of Blackpool.
