PHOTOS – The Edinburgh International Festival Fireworks Concert 2014

Tonight saw another spectacular concert and fireworks display take place to mark the end of the 2014 Edinburgh International Festival.

Over 4 tonnes of explosives and 400,000 fireworks choreographed to live orchestral music lit up the sky against the iconic backdrop of Edinburgh Castle, in what is the largest annual fireworks concert in the world.

The Scottish Chamber Orchestra conducted by Garry Walker performed classic favourites including Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries and Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, accompanied by an awe-inspiring display created by international firework artists Pyrovision, headed by Keith Webb.

We were lucky enough to be granted access to the Nelson Monument to capture the magnificent display high above Edinburgh Castle. A big thank you from us to Edinburgh Museums.

All of these pictures are for sale, with a donation from each photo sold going to It’s Good 2 Give. The photos will be of the highest resolution and without watermarks.
