A Wild and Crazy Night (Part 2)


While the bright lights of the fire trucks were still spinning, thunder began. Lisa looked up and asked if it had started to rain. The sky was cloudless. That could only mean fireworks. Cutting back through the apartment I found fireworks being set off over the Intrepid Air Space Museum on the Hudson River. No time for a tripod, I got some shots bracing my camera against the fence. All of this happened within a twenty-minute span. Some things you can’t make up.

    Hi Victor, You have some wonderful shots of the fireworks… though I couldn’t quite relate the firemen to the fireworks… 🙂 We have lots of opportunities to capture fireworks during Chinese New Year. Perhaps next year I shall give it a try with zoom lens. This year I used the hand phone.

    Thank you for your encouraging words. I have much to learn and welcome feedback.

    • The fireworks followed right on the heels of the fire. Two different windows in my apartment had an event almost simultaneously. Fireworks – the best tip in recent years for me – use a tripod and experiment with shutter speeds of 3-4 seconds. Adjust the f stop accordingly. Your shots are as I said before stunning.
