    Went to shoot the fireworks

    Got within a mile and the parking was gone.....this was 2 in the afternoon. While I was still game {kinda} I past the park. The park has never had a gate...it does today and going through this gat was a line two blocks long in bothe directions and 3 people wide. No thanks.

    So.........

    Ok that's it I MUST ask the noobish question.

    I have a Nikkor 60mm f/2.8 Macro lens. I don't think there is any way I could ever manage to produce this kind of shot with a 60mm focal length...

    What are you using?

    Absolutely stunning shots BTW.

    I've never seen fireworks that look quite like these. Great captures and post-processing!

    Thank you for the comments, James, Steve, Mike and Terri. I am glad they were enjoyed. I would have like to shoot the fireworks again but am happy to have not delt with the crowd and quite pleased with the alternative.
