silencer13: The 2nd link is not working

One very useful tip I read about is to shoot in B and then to have soft black cover to cover the lens (without touching it) to limit the exposure of the individual fireworks and then allowing the background exposure to continue after the firework has died. For my 24-105L lens I used a black neoprene cover for my 800/5.6 to control the exposure. I used this technique at the San Diego Big Bay Boom on July 4th with good success, a few examples on my blog

Michael G2: My son and I went to Iceland two summers in a row for two weeks at a time before my wife and daughter joined us for a third 2 week trip. There are no Starbucks, no McDonalds, limited wifi, no crowds, no traffic, rental cars cóst a fortune, driving through a sandstorm without "Ash" insurance cost me $3000. It's really boring, nothing to see, better to save your money and take a cruise to the Carribean...

Now you've done it! If they run out of rental cars it will be your fault.
Tell me now what you would do when you are on the ring road one hour from the nearest town and all of a sudden you are in the middle of a sand storm? How do you protect the car? Stupid people don't pay for the insurance :-)

Well there might be a couple of things to see...
