That is Christmas Wishes during one of the two or three points (including the finale) where they shoot off from positions all around the park. I video'd it twice from the Poly Beach, but haven't put it together yet...

BTW! Nice crisp shot! Well done!

Yeah that was part of the finale....as far as the shot it was total luck!! You should have seen how many pics I actually took but had to delete. I was shooting free hand with the camera just on my "Auto No-Flash" setting. I was just happy to get the 3 or 4 non-blurry pics!

LOL! Oh no- I believe you! Been there, done that!

What I found for shooting fireworks with my P&S, and I shoot mainly Illuminations, was to set focus manually to infinity, and shoot multiple bursts- the first is always a throwaway, and with a bit of practice, you get the actual burst!

When shooting single shots, I also shoot WITH flash and though it has no effect on the actual lighting (as long as some guys big head isn't in front of you!) it makes the P&S take a quick shot rather than staying open waiting for enough light to get in... I am sure there is some more sophisticated way of doing this, but that is down and dirty and easy!

(Ilivetogo) I like this... the shapes in the picture almost make for a bit of an abstract image and the Mickey is a nice finishing touch.

(wdwensel) Awesome shot... great timing!

(Gdad) Awesome job on the HM shot as always...

(Dcanoli) Great details on the Dinoland picture!

Moving Along...

....to LUNCH! About 2 years ago, we discovered the wonderful, little alcove behind Flametree BBQ. It borders the river and overlooks Everest.

This is a shot of an above-ground pond there, complete with HUGE lilypads and cranes. If you've never sought out this secluded (and often unpopulated) spot at DAK, check it out next time you go:

Been there! Done that! Got the picture... of EE being built! Yes, very cool, previously little known spot!




Nice shot of those lily pads!
