Brockham Bonfire 2007

Brockham Bonfire 2007 - #1
- Wow, where is this year going? Bonfire night already! Although we went to Brockham to actually celebrate it on Saturday, caught the special service from Dorking town centre, much less busy than the one from Redhill/Reigate direction (as most people going from Dorking walk into the village across the golf course)-

- a real party atmosphere, and actually I prefer it not being quite so crushed -

- thank goodness the weather was really clear too, so perfect for the fireworks, and much of the ash from the bonfire just went (largely) straight up, you can watch a short video of the bonfire here if you like -

- and then a snippet of the always excellent firework display, got some quite nice pictures of them too (which was nice, as taking pics of fireworks is always a bit of a hit and miss affair) -

That's a big bonfire! The fireworks all look very pretty. I haven't caught a fireworks display this year... I'm not sure I will actually :/
