Fireworks Under Dark Skies: Mammoth Lakes

I’ve added several more fireworks photos to my Mammoth Lakes album on Flickr. The Mammoth Lakes fireworks display over Crowley Lake is one of the best ones in California for seeing and photographing fireworks in a truly dark setting!  Search this blog to find my articles on how to photograph fireworks.

If you’re thinking of seeing this year’s fireworks at Crowley Lake, you can stop by the Visit Mammoth and Mono County Tourism sites to get some ideas for other great things to do in the area while you’re up there: visit Mono Lake, the historic Wild West ghost town of Bodie, explore Devil’s Postpile National Monument… there’s so much to do, you might need a week or two!

Fireworks in the Eastern Sierra Last Night

Given California's drought, the fireworks show I was watching last night lit several small grass fires on the ground below.  The town of Bridgeport in California's Eastern Sierra puts on a nice fireworks show each year.  I've placed a few photos in the front of my G+ album from attending in 2012 as well:

I posted links to a simple tutorial on fireworks photography on both my main G+ stream and to my G+ page, but for some reason neither post seemed to get much visibility:

How to Photograph Fireworks
People often ask me what my settings were for certain night shots, but the light on the landscape and your subject varies from night to night as the moon phase changes, it varies from hour to hour as the moon moves in the sky, and even from moment to moment… (continued…)

I’ve been shooting fireworks at every opportunity for many years.  Here are some examples from past years:
