Broadbeach carols fireworks

Each year Broadbeach hosts a Christmas carols event with a great fireworks display as the finale. Last year I saw these fireworks from a distance, and thought 'next year, I'll take a drive down there to take some pics'. I must admit, I did not plan the photo-taking session well, and I did not the recall the lesson: use the widest lens available. So this was the best outcome, and I class it as a probable 'fail'. I consider this effort a trial run ahead of the upcoming New Year's fireworks. Tip: use a wide lens (or move way back - as I was very close) to get all the fireworks in the shot! As you can see, several others were a lot closer - right at the safety/boundary fence.
