Fireworks

7 posts in this topic

Here are a few of the few pictures that I have taken this summer. The good news is I have lost 30 pounds with all the bike riding I had been doing smile

All of these were taken on July 4th with and Olympus 770sw hand held, braced against a railing and using the timer, and using the fireworks setting in the camera. The last one is a little fuzzy. Any c&c is welcome, just remember this was a point and shoot with no tripod. Enjoy!

It's hard to connect on the timing of fire works and you got it pretty right on. besides anything that goes Bang/Flash gets me exicited I love fireworks.

I agree, that second one is really nice. I bet that fireworks show in D.C. had to have been pretty spectacular. Thanks for sharing.

Congrats on the weight loss! I've been trying as well, without the same good results.

Thanks guys, the fireworks show out there is a definite once in a lifetime thing. Timing is pretty easy when some one is just shooting one round right after the other, I just kept pressing the button. I even tried a few burst shots that worked pretty well too.

machohorn: after ten years as a forward observer in the field artillery bang/flash is a real bad thing. But I do love it when there is a flash...bang smile

    • Have a friend that does this....   http://aquaculturenorthamerica.com/Finfish/fresh-water-fish/profitable-commercial-production-for-walleye-and-saugeye/    
    • There's a live rescue going on in Wis Como Lake I think it was right now for a guy that went through but it doesn't look good as they just sent the divers down.   WISN 12 NEWS
    • Ho Ho....   or       Use the fake news thing as a way to censor speech not acceptable to the left.  Yah sure. 
    • Pen raised walleye?   Sounds like fake news.   Lots of Canadian walleye but I think it is netted from wild in places like Lake Winnipeg or Red Lake and so on.   Must be Putin trying to discredit the Canadian Walleye providers. 
    • Quick question. On the striker models they have a setting called the A-scope. It basically widens the right hand part of the screen where it starts so that it works kinda like a showdown at the beginning of the graph which I like on the ice.  Can you check and see if that unit has that?  
    • 5 x 5 will be nor problem for one guy and gear.  I speared out of a two man flip over otter sled for several years and had not problem.  Use to spear out of a 4 x 6 permanent and that is less sq foot than the 5 x 5 hub.  It is nice to have a large hole and yes it lets in more light in those low light conditions but I always used a 3 x 2 spear hole and never had any issues.  It worked, could it be better?  Of course but you just have to figure out what is right for you.  Get a 5 x 5 foot piece of cardboard draw out your hole on it, set up your chair and put all your gear on it and then sit down.  This is probably the closest way to experiencing it prior to doing so...... Good Luck 
    • I've seen walleye at grocery stores in the cities for a buck or two more than king crab.   Yeesh.
    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
