Fireworks at Epcot! Great show! A must see! :)
That's a simple shot, sure, but i was trying the ISOs of my new stuff. A D300s. I enjoying too much. Here a good shot (sharp/colors/details) with a ISO 800.
Orlando, FL, USA.
Taking long exposures while there is a lightning storm has it's benefits, like here, where sheet lightning occured during my attempt to photograph International Drive, orlando, from the Quality inn Plaza. Incidentally this is another lost shot re-upload.
Here's another shot of downtown Orlando from a different angle.
Took this from the Amway Center parking garage. Had to pay to access then pray that I didn't get run off by security for not having a permit to shoot. Was nervous because I had to keep my camera set for about an hour to capture all the exposures needed for the image I wanted to create.
Thanks for looking!

Just to check the skies over other cities i decided to take a spin to Orlando. i had a feeling that i would find dark & cloudy skies. i should have wished for something better :)
Next morning when i woke up to my surprise the sky was showing some amazing colors. within no time i was on my favorite spot on Lake Eola. The sunrise did cooperate and got some amazing colors glow on the sky. BUT within few minutes everything was vanished and nothing but dull skies oh well i got my goodies :)

Opened May 2015, the 400ft Orlando Eye ferris wheel is the largest on the east coast.
I really liked the colours and glassiness of the water, so I snapped this before a One Ocean show. You can see the sunset whale tail and the blues and purples of the rest of the set.

Even as a passenger it isn't easy to take shots coming into Orlando because of the heavy traffic. Rush hour in the "city beautiful", as it's nicknamed, can be anything BUT beautiful.
My favorite building is the one in the middle- the Suntrust building. There are many interesting ones, but that one in particular looms large.
Orlando is to Florida what New York City or Chicago are to their states. It's the home of sports teams, tourism, and highly populated. It is not the state capital, that's in Tallahassee, a city much more Washingtonian in feel, but this is pretty much the capital in the minds of those who come to Florida to vacation, having probably even eclipsed Miami as a destination. This is mostly owing to its diverse attractions, restaurants, and shopping, as well as being only an hour from Daytona Beach. Orlando is almost in the dead center of the state, and in striking distance of most everything.
This was taken right through the windshield.
A new renovated Planet Hollywood Observatory opened here at Disney Springs. Disney has done so many upgrades to this location including new parking garages and theme restaurants.
Frontierland first appeared in Disneyland as one of five original themed lands. Conceived by Walt Disney, the land did not initially contain many attractions, but centered on open expanses of wilderness which could be traversed by guests via stagecoach, pack mules and walking trails. The Mine Train Thru Nature's Wonderland opened in 1960, consisting of a sedate train ride around various western landscape dioramas. The Mine Train closed in 1977 to make way for a new attraction; the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, which opened in 1979.
Disneyland also once had a Marshal's office, honoring Waillard P. Bounds, Walt's father-in-law, who was actually a U. S. Marshal. Disneyland's Frontierland gateway is constructed of ponderosa pine logs. The land's long shoreline along the Rivers of America is considered a prime viewing location for the nighttime Fantasmic! show. The docks to both the Mark Twain Riverboat and the Sailing Ship Columbia, (a replica of American explorer Robert Gray's 18th century ship that circumnavigated the globe) are located here, and Tom Sawyer Island in the river's center is also considered a property of Frontierland
Frontierland's buildings have lots of detail too. On the roof of the Westward Ho Trading Co., there are elk or deer antlers. Elk antlers were commonly placed on general stores in the old west so cowboys coming into town immediately knew where to get supplies. Also in Frontierland is a building that has a large sign that says "Laod Bhang Co. Fireworks Factory". Plus, at the storefront marked "Crockett and Russel Hat Co.", you'll find a window honoring Fess Parker, who played Davy Crockett in Walt Disney's Davy Crockett. Frontierland borders Fantasyland (via the Big Thunder Trail), New Orleans Square and Adventureland, and connects to the Central Plaza through an iconic set of fort-style gates.
