There is obviously an art to photographing fireworks which has so far eluded me but I thought this one looked ok.
The 9pm fireworks at Coogee Beach was a popular event with a big crowd & everyone loved the great display.

Photographed with a Canon 400D at Coogee, Sydney, Australia.
I used an ISO of 1600 for this because I chose to leave the tripod at home.

Snaptacular, Jan 2014.

Country born & bred but now located in Sydney, Australia.

I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature & in particular Australian native flowers & landscapes. I also love colour & anything unusual.
The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.
