    There are some great ones of the storm in Canberra and the fireworks on Australia day floating around. None of mine though, I stayed home.

    some I took in 1990
    nothing fantastic but I was happy with them given the equipment I had at the time.
    Ricoh KR5 slr, 100iso print film, timed exposure with a tripod & shutter release cable.

    This pic was taken about 10 years ago about 3am in the morning with a point and shoot that had some manual functions. It was also one of my first ever too.
    It was reasonably close, enough to white out the sensor.
