    A few shots from fireworks last night. Where we have gone the past two years isn't the best vantage point for fireworks photography (no real good shots at all, though I do include one below)..and it's only OK for actually viewing the fireworks (it was fine, but I'd prefer to be closer...but with a 6 year old in tow, getting home quickly afterwards is sometimes more important.)

    Two from sparkler fun beforehand, with the A6000 and the Sigma 30/2.8.


    And one of the fireworks with the 18-105. Like I said, no good fireworks shots, but at least I got some cool shots of my daughter having a bit of fun!

    Love the last one!
    And the 2nd one is very good too - how did you light up the scene (grass)? Flash?

    All simply sparkler light (several second exposures)

    Were these taken hand-held or with stabilization (tripod/monopod)?
