Disneyland at Night

An assortment of pictures and experiments at Disneyland, October 27th, 2007

Went primarily to shoot the Believe Fireworks show this evening.

1
As dusk fell. (You have to understand that in order to get a "good" seat for the Believe Fireworks show, you better be there before the parade starts! Unless you don't mind standing for a few hours.....)
2
In the classic Goofy "Thinker" position. (One of the bronze statues in the main square)
3
Shortly before the start of the 6:30 parade
4
After the parade has finished.

Testing the flashes to see if we can capture the statue, the Castle and the Micky firework shell set.

It is just fun to watch folks dance and listen to some great swing music!

The moon was peeking from behind partial clouds. Made for some great pictures!
12
Here's the money shot I was after. The two arches are still burning when the Mickey fireworks set goes off. Next time - color tint the flashes towards orange so it isn't so stark.

It's hard to describe just how incredible Tinker Bell looks as she flys around over the castle.
