Fur Rendezvous Fireworks

There are lots of locations from which to photograph the Fur Rondy Fireworks.  What I'm thinking is that we meetup after the fireworks at some location downtown to share our shots and visit.

Hopefully, these fireworks will be of the same quality as previous years (not like the lame New Year's Eve show).

Post any thoughts on where we could gather after the event.

    A great display. I wish I was better at capturing the beauty.

    Jeff,

    Most folks are going to shoot from a favorite location they've found. We'll be meeting up after the fireworks at Ski & Benny's on Government Hill. I'll be at the Alaska Raroad corporate offices around 6pm. I'll be shooting from down on Ship Creek. Anyone is welcome to join me there.

    I "think"we are going for the top of the 5th ave parking garage. That or we will come join you...or vice versa. Dan and I are still debating whether to try both spots on separate cars or just do the parking garage.

    Where are you going to shoot?

    I'm thinking the best spot to meetup after the fireworks is Ski & Benny Pizza at 821 Bilbo St. up on Government Hill. It's right next to the AT&T building. It looks like a hole in the wall kind of place but we had a good time the last time we were there.

    lright, we have picked our spot I think :)

    Kristie, I was shooting from that park on Government Hill. It was a spot about 30 feet down the side of the hill. It was one of the few places that didn't have any trees in the way. Mark Stadsklev got similar shots from the port area. He worked some deal to get in there. The only problem he had was power lines between him and the city.

    Marco, where you at the year you got those great shots with Anchorage downtown in the shot?

    February 24, 2012

    I'm going to start out from the parking lot next to the ARR corporate office building (not the station). This location works if you don't want Anchorage in the photos.

    There is a park that overlooks the port. We shot from there two years ago. If you can get there early it's possible to get a spot without trees in the way.

    Deb, where from Government Hill are you shooting from? We keep wanting to shoot from over there but don't know of a good spot. We are also thinking of where Marco shot last year or in the parking lot under Resolution Point. Any other good locations people know of?

    Could you list some good locations to shoot the fireworks from?

  • Ed B.

    Have we decided where we are going to meet up after the show?

  • Sylvia M.

    thanks! I may have to work Sat. night but if I can make it I will call to see where people are gathering after the fireworks.
