This was actually just a test shot for something else I was working on. I was about to hit delete and realized it was pretty cool. Enjoy.
I made my first attempt at taking pictures of Fireworks last night and am pleased with the results. I learned a lot and will try a few things differently next time.
One key to decent pictures was I used a tripod and Bulb shutter with a remote release. I think that without that all of my shots would have been unusable.
- Nikon D5100

I’ve ordered a real DSLR finally but for the moment, you have more point and shoot glory for your viewing pleasure. Playalinda is one of our favorite beaches around here due to the more remote nature of it. Typically it has only locals which is a good thing. Being located in a national park there are no services at all except for latrine style bathrooms.
There are only a couple things not perfect here. The abundance of fishermen is the first. They are nice but their lines and hooks can be a nuisance. The other is parking lot 13. Somehow that area at the end of the long beach has become an unofficial clothing optional beach. It doesn’t seem like its an issue for those that don’t want it, they stay in their own area, but still, we don’t push our luck.
