These are some of my best fireworks shots I have ever taken. This was on New Years Day (2013) at Epcot at Walt Disney World during the IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth Show
For the photo geeks. The photos are single exposures taken with a Canon 5D Mark II with a Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS @ 50mm (except for the portrait orientation) lens at f/13 with an ISO 100. The camera was mounted on an Induro CT114 w/ a Really Right Stuff Mini Head BH-25 Tripod and head.
