Thanks to all, if not for this challenge, I would not have tried to capture the fireworks. I would probably have stayed home and enjoyed the live telecast on TV instead of hiking up the bridge, camping out for 4 hours and struggling with the traffic to get home afterwards.

Anyway I am really glad I did it. Nice start to 2009. Hope it stays this way. Thanks to all & have a great 2009
