DISCLAIMER: ATTEMPT AT YOUR OWN RISK

THIS IS A DANGEROUS ACTIVITY AND I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS

Basically, I hiked up Camelback Mountain at night to take some pictures of the fireworks from the top of the mountain. I, nor the other 20 people who had hiked up with the same idea were disappointed. There were usually multiple fireworks shows going on at one time, sometimes as many as 15 at once (yes, I counted). It was really cool and was by far the best view in the city. It was a perfectly clear night and you could see for miles in every direction.

I took quite a few pictures, and for my first time taking pictures of fireworks, I am really happy with how they came out. Exposures ranged from 30 seconds to 5 minutes. I used my Canon 30D with the remote timer on the lowest ISOs usually. You can see full metadata on my photo site.While I didn't do any HDR exposures, I did manage to get a couple of panoramas in, so be sure to check those out.
You can see my blog post on these photos here.
