Illuminations Imagination

Traditionally, Friday is the day photographers on the Internet post firework photos. Who am I to argue with tradition as I enjoy going through all the wonderful Abstract photos posted to this month’s assignment.

Journey into Imagination's Reverse Waterfall as Illuminations fireworks explode overhead.

Journey into Imagination's Reverse Waterfall as Illuminations fireworks explode overhead in Epcot, Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida. Nikon D700/Tokina 11-16mm, 8.6s, f/9, ISO 400, EV 0, 16mm focal length, tripod, 3-stop ND filter.

I setup a tripod across from Journey Into Imagination’s famous reverse waterfall, controlled the shutter manually and put a 3-stop (0.9) Neutral Density filter on the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 UWA lens to take this photo.

Have a grand weekend everyone!

    Nice perspective! I like how the orange-y red tones of the lit fountain contrast with the blue/white colors of the exploding fireworks. You must have had that spot all to yourself! 🙂


  4. I sure did. Only Disney fan photographers would do this. Most people are crowded around the lagoon. I have seen photos of Illuminations from the back of some the countries, too. But I have yet to photograph it from the “front” between the two stores where it is designed to be seen from.

    With apologies to Walt, I’m not really a big Disney fan – but this is really cool! (I still say that. Walt would too.)

    My compliments! It must have been very special to see it live, and a challenge to catch it all in time. Love the colors.
