Hi All,

We had a great time with a fair vantage point. It did rain.

My H9's performace amazed me as I was using it in burst mode, mostly manual focus to infinity.

All straight out of the camera except auto levels and auto sharpen and reduce size for web.

If you click on an image and keep clicking next you will get the feel of what we saw.

IMHO, AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING, the fire works that is ( as well as my H9. Ha! )

Thanks Gary

Hi Gary,

Almost all of my shots were at ISO 100 at 1/13 sec, f3.2, steady shot, with my wet monopod.

I always experiment with this type of shooting. See what works on the LCD and then go with it.

It is alot of fun.
