    Good shots. Unfortunately, my thoughts of shooting the fireworks display over Stephenville (we live on a rise about 5mi from the launch site) were interrupted by some idiots setting a field on fire with fireworks about 500yds from our driveway. The people responsible for it were long gone by the time it was reported, and I didn't get there until about 2 minutes after that. By the time the FD got there, the display was well underway, and I knew nothing would end it so quickly as getting my tripod set up :(

    Firework shows last for about 2 or 3 hours here in Japan but none on them take place on the 4th of July. :D

    nothing special going on in any of my cities either.

    4th of July has to do something with some revolt in the colonies, right?


    :p

    Here is the display in Abilene, Texas. I took them by a local lake with my Nikon D40 at f8 and 200 iso. I used the 18-55 lens with exposure times ranging from 2 to 30 seconds. I wish I would have brought my 55-200 lens but I thought the fireworks were going to be a lot closer. :(

    I thought this one was interesting. I was zooming during the exposure and came out with a neat effect.
