Since a lot of people have been posting pictures of their fireworks, I figured I would share a sample of some that I took.

These were from the celebration at the State Capital in Bismarck ND.

Comments are always appreciated

These seem much sharper than a lot of the others have have been posted- you must have been lucky enough to have a tripod!

Yep! Had to have a Tripod for something like this. Actually, to be honest, this was my first attempt at shooting fireworks.

The kicker of all this is that my wife and I walked about 10-15 minutes to our spot, then I set-up only to realize that I left the plate at home for my tripod so I had to sprint home to get it cause I "had" to have these shots. Get back only for the fireworks to be delayed by 30 minutes. Such is life.

Thanks, I actually have around 200 that I took that night, only wanted to get a few posted quickly. None of these had any PP either.
