New Years Eve Fireworks
Posted by: David Arnspiger on January 1st, 2015

Both my last picture of the year for 2014 and my first picture of the year for 2015. The New Years Eve fireworks on the strip in Las Vegas.

I shot this from 5 or six miles away in Henderson, Nevada. I set up on a hillside with my tripod in the wind and cold doing long exposures. My image quality suffered. I did get a free show from some drunk girls on a nearby balcony (no photos were taken) and what I thought was just going to be my space was invaded by thirty other cars 10 minutes before the show.

I wish I had gotten better images, but it's still a cool moment in time.
