Mayor's Thames Festival along the River Thames in London, celebrating the 'end of summer'. Set up on the Waterloo Bridge a good two hours before scheduled start of the fireworks to ensure a good vantage point (with St Paul's Cathedral in the background). Unfortunately, the display was "rapid fire", with one burst on top of another, so it was hard to get good clean shots. There was also a slight breeze, causing the fireworks (and smoke) to drift across the frame left-to-right. And while I ended up with a few keepers, this was by far the best shot of the night.
