***I thought maybe people would like to post some May 24 picture on here, Firework Pics/Video and pictures of places people typically go to around here would be great.***



I went to Grand Bend on Saturday with a friend and then lit fireworks

They are trying to transition Grand Bend to become known more as a family destination than party place.... This is beneficial for many reasons a lot of the time there but I noticed on holidays where the beach used to be packed is no where NEAR as busy as it used to be. There was also a lot of police officers on foot patrol checking people bottles for alcohol etc...

Excellent work. That last shot at the bottom was really cool with the flare surrounded by the 'aurora borealis' :) (which I know is just blurred smoke, but the effect was pretty awesome )

Thanks it was my first time shooting fireworks..... it's a lot easier when you get to tell the guy when to light so you can take the time to setup and get the shots, plus you can get closer than allowed on the public displays haha :)
