Congrats to all fireworks shooters

14 posts in this topic

Hey all:

Just wanted to post an "attaboy" for all the neat fireworks photo threads running in here now. Rather than go into each one and say "nice job!" 5,309 times, I figured I'd look at all of them and then give kudos en masse. gringrin

Really pretty photographs, everyone! smilesmile

I also, have really enjoyed viewing them. I haven't gone out to watch fireworks for many years. It's nice to see these without the accompanying noise. I may have been tempted to shoot some if the full moon would have been in line with the fireworks. That could have been unique.

Mucho gracias for sharing these gorgeous shots.

The moon also tempted me. It was the wrong angle to shoot with the moon and fireworks from my house (the fireworks are a quarter mile away in plain view), and I didn't feel like toting my gear and driving to position myself so the moon and fireworks both would be in the frame, so I just left my gear in the bag and watched them from my office window. Sure were pretty.

We kept looking over our left shoulder for you on the roof with a huge lens pointed at Miner's. grin

I like being close enough to feel em. And if I can stand on those high banks and watch the reflection of them on the glass calm water (except during a trout's rise), all the better.

What'd ya think of those REALLY big uns? shocked

I liked the monsters that were solid yellow/gold and burst up and out and then fell like symmetrical fountain water, rotating slightly as the trails fell. Those were simply amazing. There were about half a dozen of them during the show, and whoever ran it must have realized what he/she had, because none of them were teamed up with other fireworks, and were allowed to stand alone and fade before the next shots.

Had I realized those were going to be there, I'dve had the camera ready on a tripod.

Oh well. smilesmile

    • I have seen 3 different flocks of Swan's in the past week. I have also seen small flocks of little birds that look to be migrating.
    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

    •   Shouldn't be hard to come up with a way to fill a 1/4 inch gap, it seems to me.   Rip some strips of something, maybe even that synthetic decking, trex or something.    Then you could have the vinyl

    •   No, but they wouldn't send them all to Belle Plaine where all the bleedies will take care of them, so what are we going to do? Man your pulling everything out of the old Libertarian hang book tonight.

    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
