Points of Light

Fireworks seen from above on the 4th of July. We climbed a trail to a ridge at around 2000 feet overlooking Pasadena and the Rose Bowl, about 1500 feet below us and 2 to 3 miles away. The Rose Bowl press box can be seen in the lower left. E-5 with 50-200 mm and EC-14 at 283 mm, ISO 100, f/5.6, 4 seconds. In-camera noise reduction. On a tripod with cable release and no shutter delay. Timing the shots for a burst of light is mostly luck but using mirror lock up made it very difficult to catch a fireworks burst.
