This was a first time for me in the Hungarian Capital, but for sure not the last! We arrived in Budapest a few days before the New Year's eve, having secured a smal and friendly pension in the Buda-part of the city. I did not bring my tripode along this time, although that beingone of the essentials when you plan taking shoots of fireworks. You then need to mount your camera on a tripode, make use of a remote control and (ideally) set you camera in the "bulp"-mode for exposures 15–30 seconds; and use a large shutter. Hence my photos of the Hungarian fireworks by necessity is rather poor given the circumstances. If I look into my archives I'll show you an example, like this one from a New Year in Gothenburg, Sweden.

All the firework provided was on individual initiative, cheered and applauded by the masses. All orderly and with great care and responsibility.
