I must say I was pretty impressed with the point and shoot camera when it came to photographing the fireworks. I wasn't sure I'd even take any photos but since I had the camera on me I thought I'd give it a shot (pun intended). After taking a few photos I remembered that I had seen a "fireworks" presetting on the camera. I turned it on and the images were much better. I didn't have the tripod on me so I just sat back in my beach chair and balanced the camera on my knee. Not too shabby.
The first 3 photos were taken of fireworks being set off on Saquish. We were lucky to have people near by putting on a show. The last photo is from the Plymouth fireworks. I used the power zoom to try to get in closer but since I didn't have the camera on a tripod the image is blurier. I like that you can see the reflection in the water.
