Well it's the 4th of July in Las Vegas. It's been 107 *F for days now so I've spent my holiday inside reading about digital photography. I rode around this morning for 4 hours checking out places setting up firework displays. I've check winds for smoke direction. I've checked for powerlines and light polution. I've read page upon page of techique for photographing fireworks. I've got an 8 pound tri-pod and a remote and several lenses. Time for me to stake out a spot and give it a whirl. Wish me luck.
I really hope I get to see reports/images of all your attempts tonight as well.....those who have such plans that is. Good luck.
