Don'tcha love it when that happens? :-D

Those are very impressive. I've never managed to catch a firework (yet) and I love seeing them.

Still the best way to get fireworks that I have ever used is to set
the shutter on Bulb and hold a black card over the lens, pulling it
away with each burst. After three or four, advance to a new frame. Of
course you must have a tripod and a good clear view of the fireworks.

My old pocket camera has a Scene setting for fireworks, so I'm
guessing many of the newer cameras do, too. I've never used that
setting; I should give it a try.

Really nice photos, Tom! Definitely something to be happy about :-)

Love the top one, reminds me of a John Constable painting. A bit more earth and it would almost be a perfect J C.

Kitty's storm cloud pix make me wish I lived in a locale where I could
see off into the distance. Here, there are too many big trees and hill
blocking the view. Really nice variations on a theme, Kitty.

I can never get a moon picture to turn out. That is wonderful.

Ooooo..... so beautiful and mysterious.

They push your skill and camera limits.

{995} Remember that the moon has the same sunlight falling on it as does the earth, and expose as you would for noon in Atlanta. Don't just meter the sky, it won't work. Set an aperture at f/5.6, f/8, etc and a shutter speed of 1/60, up to maybe 1/200. Use a tripod; you don't want to move the camera even a little.

Thanks, TJ, Wrote that down and stashed it for future reference.

Great catch just before it sinks behind that thick bank on the horizon. (Heh, unless it's coming up over it as in morning!)

Just a thought for Tom, to add to TJ's suggestion. Using the timer in
your camera to take the photo, instead of your finger, will also help
eliminate any camera movement. It's great in combination with a
tripod. I bought a remote control device for my first digital SLR.
Those work well, too.

Yeah, I neglected to mention that. I use a remote switch connected
physically to the camera, but there are also infrared remotes
available depending on your camera. In their absence, the old self
timer technique usually works wonders, and I think all cameras today
have them. On mine I can also lock up the mirror to prevent the
vibration from the mirror slapping up to make the exposure.
