Pig Roast and Pyroman Spectacular

Fully engulfed in flames!

It’s been 4 years since Harry Cotterly took to the stage as Pyroman. On Saturday, Sept 7th, guests and residents of New Ipswich attended a Pig Roast at Harry’s home to socialize, enjoy great food and company and watch a spectacular fireworks display.

With a chance of rain, the show was moved forward a bit and some wiring difficulties prevented a few effects from not firing.

I had some of my own problems with attempting to capture a video of the production. Fireworks are difficult to photograph. Focusing and exposure can only be approximated. In one video you’ll note the camera is constantly seeking to focus in the display.

Of course no video can capture the live event, seeing the entire sky filled with light and sound.

Thanks Harry and Noelia for a great time and great show. Some photos:
