The second night of the fireworks competition here, South Africa was the team, was pretty wicked. We were treated to a thunder/lightning storm before, during, and after the fireworks. I managed to capture a couple bolts with fireworks, but most of my images weren't so spectacular. I was more concerned with keeping my camera dry in the Kata bag.

Here are a few that I liked from the night though. The rest of the shots are here: http://www.millionflam​e.com …ireworks/HSBC20​09Night02/ (external link)

1) I should have kept this framing the whole night, but my brain wasn't working properly after this shot. This one is my favourite though.

2) I could clone out the black mark in the corner from my Kata bag, but I don't care right now.
