Had my first chance to photo some fireworks the other night. I must say it was a lot of fun. The fireworks were launched from the base of a cliff next to a beach, as we were on top of the cliff the fireworks were virtually straight over head. This was great from a spectators point of view but for photos I needed to be further away to give some scale etc. Anyway I'm happy with my attempts and will be ready next year....

Nice sharp pics there Steve. I assume you used a tripod?

When I saw a post titled "Fireworks" I thought "That's got to be an Australian!". (For everyone not fortunate enough to be born an Aussie , Jan 26 is Australia Day and just about every city in the country had a fireworks display).

Cheers,
Ollie

Those work really well

Like you said, ideally you needed a wider angle of view, but they're still well worth having!

John.
