Taken at Carols by the bay in Geelong, 2011. The smaller tendrils at the bottom seemed to throw the larger bang further into the air like a flower bud pops it’s bloom.

It was a great night to experience my first attempt at capturing fireworks.

Nikon D80, 18-135mm, tripod mounted, wirelessly fired.
ISO 100, f/8, 135mm for 6.9 sec.
