A calendar is a cheap start.

RG – I was thinking a coffee table book,

Calendar might be a better option. See how we’re cooking come August….

Heh, I wish I had taken that photo.

“genious” is that a cross between a genie and a genius?

I’ll happily admit to insanity if it helps.

Coolest pic in the series so far!

Whoops, Geoffco, you are a genious. Not Samuel. Not that I know of anyway. Maybe I’ll just shut up 😉

What equipment do you use Geoff?

Geoffco 9:32 am 19 May 05

It was planned – basically you open the shutter when you see the squib go up, and release just before it all disappears.

Thanks for the nice words 🙂

Samuel, you are a genious!

Are all these piccies pure happenstance or do you plan these out?

johnboy, I’m no visual expert, but I’m thinking there is enough quality here for a RiotACT calendar. It’s an advert at a nominal cost to pay site upkeep bills. Given that contributors are happy to permit use for no royalties in the spirit of supporting the site.

It’s a marvellous picture.

I need to add a speech bubble from my house. The wonderdog, Queen Dog-Dog Nattie the 1st, saying “Woof Woof Woof Woof”.

I can’t say I’ve ever seen a picture of Canberra quite like that one before, and the fireworks do look very special when paused from above.
