Here are a few shots from 2010 Silver Bells in the City celebration in Lansing, Michigan. The event attracts over 150,000 people and includes the electric light parade, followed by the lighting of the state Christmas tree and a firework show over the State Capitol. The whole thing makes for some pretty cool photo ops. Enjoy!

This just makes me so mad because I really wanted to be there to shoot AND what makes it even worse is that I live right down the street from the capital but due to some other school I couldn't make it :cry:

Thank you. I've been going to this event for years and I finally brought my tripod with me to shoot the fireworks. We had a great time as usual, especially since the temps were above freezing this year. My wife was a good little assistant on the fireworks shots....she helped me set up in the crowd and then kept the mob from trampling my tripod. Good times.

Awesome stuff. My family was there. I can see why people keep telling me to invest in good glass...it really pays off.
