Kölner Lichter 2012

Actually it is useless to take pictures at such an event when one is unprepared. The ambitious hobby photographers already took position hours before the fireworks started while I passed by from a farewell party back home. Certainly, a tripod is indispensable for taking proper fire works pictures. Using 3200 ASA doesn’t really make sense for capturing the dynamics, but it is very suitable to catch the bizzarly coloured surroundings with the visitors.

It was not easy, to squeeze my camera lense through a small hole in the blinds which the organisers of the spectacle put up to prevent peeping people to take decent photographs from the fireworks.

What the heck, the official photographers had much better positions with professional support. Why me trying to ‘compete’ in disfavouring circumstances?
