  1. love that last photo. How did you get such a great shoot?? What settings on your camera? Hopefully you can get this in a printable photgraph and save for the scrap book. I'v tried for years at least on 5 visits to get such a shot and never even got close.

      Thanks. I always experiment when I am taking photos with fireworks.I was on the second floor of the train station and would have liked the castle centered but there were to many people up there at the time and I got there at the last minute. I used shutter priority, ISO 800, SS 1/13 and left it on continuous. I usually use a tripod but didn't this time. I normally use an ISO of 200 and a much slower shutter speed for fireworks.

      I originally heard Seven Dwarf's Mine Train would be done by the end of the year but from the exterior looks like it will be close. I cant even imagine what the interior must look like. Triton's Treasures seems to be progressing, so hopefully soon.
