A SPECTACULAR picture of the fireworks opening night display on Wexford Quays is proving an Internet sensation, and has attracted more than 22,600 views since being posted on Facebook late last Wednesday night.
It has also had 257 'shares', and 745 'likes', up to the time of writing on Monday morning.
The 15-second exposure, taken by graphic designer and part-time professional photographer Lee Robinson, was taken from Mulgannon and shows Bride Street Church and Wexford Bridge with the exploding fireworks between the two landmarks.
'From that perspective you see the town and the fireworks,' said Lee.
Lee, who works for Impression Print, said he was very surprised at the huge number of hits received by the image.
'It was nice to get that response. I was taking the picture for a Christmas card,' he said, adding that a picture he took some years back of the snow on Wexford Quays had also attracted a lot of attention, but not as much as his fireworks shot.
'The conditions were perfect. There was no wind and that allowed me to make the exposure that bit longer,' said Lee, who used a Nikon D300 mounted on a tripod.
Lee specialises in wedding photography and Landscapes with his partner Edyta Walkowska.
