4th of July Fireworks

I went downtown this evening to catch the 4th of July fireworks display by the City of Burlington. The main reason I was there was to practice some techniques I had learnt on photographing fireworks. I brought my Nikon D70s, 3 lenses, a couple of batteries and compact flash cards, Nikon remote control, and a tripod. I got there a little early and scouted for the ideal spot which was hard to find. There were lots of people around and most had chosen their spots. I did find a nice location after peeking over a wall at Battery Park. I setup my tripod and camera, took some test shots and then waited for the show. I have to say that it's not easy to capture a fireworks display for many reasons but I think I did pretty good. A small apperture and a long shutter speed was the key. These are some of the shots I took of the fireworks at the Burlington Waterfront.
Happy 4th of July y'all!!

Hi Harjit,
Those pictures turned out great. You have a remote control for your camera.
