Apparently highly volatile explosives and wooden piers don't go hand in hand.

Who'd have thought it?

It was a great show like - you've done a good job of capturing it so well.

Thanks for that, it was a good show I just held my old nikon 4500 in video mode but it only captures short sections, thats my voice on the end can't remember what I said though lucky I don't swear.
