This evening we wandered out for 10:15, so we'd be there at 10:25, when the Tattoo comes to an explosive end, and waited for the fireworks to start.
And then learned that it doesn't matter how good the camera is - if you're taking photos at night of a part of the city a mile away, then without a tripod they aren't going to come out very well.
However, we did get a couple of neat shots, which Julie has fiddled with a bit to make them come out well:
And we'll just have to go back out again next week. Can't do it tomorrow, as we'll actually be _at_ the tattoo - we've been meaning to go for years, and I finally managed to remember back in June. It's set to rain tomorrow, but not much, and finishing by six, so hopefully by 9:00 it'll be clear skies and dry seats!
