Fireballs swinging in Stonehaven

A crowd watches fireballs being swung in Stonehaven's traditional ceremony on 31 December.

The annual fireball ceremony marked Hogmanay and the start of 2013 in north east Scotland.

Stonehaven Fireball Association organised the procession along the town's High Street to the harbour.
