Below are two images.  The first is where we will meet at the Sam's parking lot.  The second is, after some discussion, where we will view the fireworks.

We ruled out the Gaylord parking garage because we aren't sure about their position on photographers is.  If we can get a positive response that might be something to do later this summer.   We ruled out Oak Grove Park because we weren't sure about the quality of the reflections from that angle.  The reflections were good out on the lake but not sure about shooting along the shore.  That leaves Rockledge Park. 

Rockledge park is about a mile from the fireworks instead of half a mile.  So in addition to a 28-70mm I am bringing a[masked] mm lens.  One of them will work!

I plan to get there early because I don't want to stand behind a crowd.  There may not be much of a crowd but why take the chance?

It will be hot.  I plan to bring an umbrella and a cooler with a refreshing beverage, some snacks, and maybe even water.  Water would be good.

Don't forget the tripod, remote shutter release, mirror lockup for long exposures, camera manual if you need help, extra cards and batteries. 

We are going to get some great pictures!
