Festival de la Luz 2015

DSC_0069 - Version 2©El Maratón del Pacífico was in danger of Hurricane Sandra this year, but she, fortunately, never materialized. But boy oh boy, the fireworks came through better than ever!

I had a really good time with Greg earlier this week scouting locations to photograph the fireworks. Usually, I take the pics from our house, where we have a party with some friends. But from our house, you look left to see six stations of fireworks, and you look right to see five more. I wanted to go somewhere where I could see ALL the stations all in one sighting, rather than being in the middle of them all (which also has its advantages). Click on any photo to see it larger or view a slideshow.

So, we scouted locations, and I found a place where I could get unobstructed views of the fireworks and a good reflection of them in the ocean. Fortunately we also avoided the smoke that can get in the way of crisp photos. Then I did some research so that I could take the best photos possible. I set my camera ahead of time, so when I got there it would be easy to get going.

What do you think? I feel pretty good; they are way better than last year. I missed the closeups, but I have so wanted to do some of these shots.

Many, many thanks to Greg for his patience with my photography, and for him and our friends joining us for cena and drinks! The start of the full and half marathon will come early tomorrow, so I will post this so we can get some shuteye. Thanks for the terrific fireworks display, Mazatlán!
