Smoke monster

    Newer Older

    The fireworks were great, but IMO the spotlights were amazing. Its too bad they didn't use them more to light up the smoke.

    Happy 75th birthday Golden Gate Bridge!

      I loved the lights that they put on the span right after the fireworks, they were so much brighter than the regular lights, and really made it look like a giant steep harp.

      Great shot, but I just noticed the light trails in the sky circling the area. What's up with that? I got some in my shots too. Just wondering lol.

      There was a green plane that circled the entire time, from Slacker Hill it went really really close over us.

      Thanks for the comments guys.
      Yeah those were awesome. Its too bad they can only afford to use them once every 25 years =(
      I think you made the 11 o'clock news Miguel =) There was a news chopper and some private planes circling the entire time. Would be cool to see what shots those guys got.

      Thanks Darv. Where you camped out at the "mini-bunker" on the first turnout west of Spencer?

      So smooth and crisp. Nice job.

      Yes, pretty close to it but on the road. The top of the bunker was lined with people.

      Great smoke monster! And beautiful reflections on the water.

      I agree - the spot lights added a lot. They ought to become a regular part of all fireworks shows!
