For the first time yesterday I took decent shots of the famous Macy's 4th of July fireworks. Though I've watched them and even snapped some shots over the years, I've never really had access to them in clear view. The photos came out decent even though the fireworks were really quite a way away. I am in Jersey at the bank of the Hudson river and the fireworks happen on the East River across the city.
More photos can be seen here on Flickr.

I've always enjoyed the Digital Photography School blog and used some of their tips over the years. This post on capturing fireworks was specially helpful.
