Fireworks to ring in the new year

What better way to welcome the new year than with photos of fireworks? These are my favorites from the bunch of photos I took, although I think my photos last year were better.

Fireworks in paradise

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moment

That fleeting moment

I’m hard-pressed to find something as ephemeral as fireworks. Most of the time, I don’t bother with shooting them and opt to just relax and enjoy the view. Last January 1st was different because I finally had a tripod with me and set up my camera ahead of time. This is my favorite photo from that night. Taken with a Canon S95.
