4th of July fireworks

We spent the evening with friends and watched the fireworks from the neighborhood park. Being the photo geek that I am, I had to take camera and tripod. So here is a nice gallery of some images from the show (click on the image). Enjoy!

For those who don't know, photographing fireworks is quite easy. You just need to dial in an aperture of 8 to 16 or so at low ISO (200 or lower) and open the lens for a few seconds, the time depending on how long you want the streaks to be. Focus your lens on infinity (an easy way is to focus on the moon) and shoot away.
