Nikon Coolpix P5100, 4 sec at f/7.6, ISO 64 (hand-held)

Who says you need a fancy SLR to capture fireworks photos? ;) I went low-key again this year for the fireworks display and just brought my point-and-shoot (no tripod) … I got a few cool pics and this was one of them. I’ve shot a lot of fireworks displays in my days and it’s nice to just sit back, relax and enjoy the show.

Maybe next year I’ll go all-out and bring the DSLR. :)
