I took this 2 years ago...I loved how the ground lit up and took on an almost surreal look, like a painting!
For those photographers out there - just a note about shooting fireworks...if you have this function on your camera, turn on "Noise Reduction". It's used to eliminate noise in the dark areas of long exposures. I've had a lot of success using that feature. The one drawback using this function, as in this case, was that I had to wait 10 seconds for the function to eliminate any noise before I shot another photo...but I think the wait was worth it!
