Following up on Mad Aussie's (where is that guy anyway?) thread http://www.photography.ca/Forums/f14/wildlife-night-shooting-setup-17466.html I was out at a nearby pond/swamp looking for wildlife. Although very noisy with the sound of what I assume are frogs, I never saw any. Still, around sunset I took these:

As night falls there are suddenly some loud bangs and a well organized and complex fireworks display starts out of nowhere. It's wasn't Canada Day yet and I still have no idea why on a random weeknight someone was shooting off fireworks near a residential area at about 1030 at night. But I had the opportunity to capture the display reflected in the pond so kept shooting with my 70-200 lens. Reflections are my favorite shots at any rate.

Nice work! I really like that 2nd shot in the first series. I also like the fireworks' reflection in the second set....so unusual.

I really like the soft light in the first one. Also like the trio of fireworks in the last one.
