I had a great time with a few friends watching and photographing the fireworks show at Lake Tahoe. One of my goals was to get a combination star-trails/fireworks photo and the result isn’t too shabby.

The rocks are illuminated by a warm incandescent torch from both sides. After the fireworks show, I left the camera exposing for another 30 mins or so.
Specs above: Nikon D300, 11-16mm 2.8, roughly an hour of exposures + 5min foreground exposure. The rocks were lit twice with an incandescent torch: once from the left and once from the right. 

The show begins! 
Specs above: Nikon D2Xs, Nikon 17-55mm 2.8 @ f11 for 30 seconds, ISO 200
