    hard to believe they built this thing back in 1937 without the help of computers or any modern tools.

    nope, this picture is not flipped, i was one of the handful of crazy people hiked in the dark to go to marshall beach for this :-)

    the boring behind the story story:
    I went to this spot thinking that the fireworks would look great reflecting off the water...however there were 2 slight problems. 1) the tide wasn't high enough, it only sort of covered the beach 2) I had no idea where they were gonna launch the fireworks, I thought they were gonna launch them closer to the middle of the channel (like between the 2 towers) and when it started, I quickly realized that most of the big booms were behind the hill and I basically went there for nothing. When I was busy sighing, out from no where, they launched 2 big ones right to the upper right of the frame and it was perfect!....and then that was it, the only shot I had that was properly framed and it lit everything up nicely.

      Most shots of this have the fireworks in front of the bridge, partially obscuring it. This one features the bridge front-and-center. I'm sorry you missed the show, but this shot's unique. Beautiful!
