Actually I only got one pic of fireworks! We rolled up on the spot where I was gonna take 'em late They were already going off so we just parked, I jumped out, grabbed my tripod, and managed to get just a single pic of the finale. Great camera the P880 is, it made a decent shot out of it (had the exposure set a bit too long from earlier @ 6 seconds). I didn't even secure it to my tripod, I just set it on top and held it steady :lol:

So the lights look a lil' weird but the bursts are cool nonetheless!

Spent the day at the river (James river, that is... I'm just south of Richmond VA), the James is a pretty cool river, granite base to it, sometimes sand or river rock on top of that, and it's usually shallow enough and the water is slow enough that you can wade across it, or at least most of the way. Recently we've had a fair bit of rain, and thankfully just today the water was low enough (and clean enough! runoff from farms upstream can be uh, nasty) for some fun.

My buddy about 1/3 the way out, I'd estimate 300 feet to that log. The max zoom on the 880 could be a bit better, but all things considered it's just right for not having to use a tripod, at least in daylight conditions.

A couple of my buddies went tubing, this is where a 10-12x zoom woulda been nice. I put green marks next to 'em cuz you can't really tell them from rocks or ducks lol.
