Gunning, in New South Wales, Australia must be the only place where you can experience a display of fireworks second only to Sydneys New Years Eve with over one hour of fireworks demonstrations!

Now Gunning is a tiny country town that just happens to have nearby a major fireworks factory and it is rumoured that they test out various fireworks in preparation for Sydneys New Years Eve display.

I took the first photo about 6:40 and the last at 8:18 and there was no time to check images as there was just constant fireworks going off for nearly an hour and forty minutes.

These were all shot with the E-M1 and the 12-60 lens. As I was so close had to set aperture down to F11 and most shots were at 12mm. Used LiveTime with a 1 sec update to the screen.

Here's looking across the showground before the event, yes about half way are all the fireworks, gives you an idea just how close you are

I shot 350 odd images for the night and still working my way through them.

Hope you enjoy
