Disneyland 17/09/2010

Disneyland 17/09/2010, originally uploaded by greenplasticdave.

After seeing how pointless it was to arrive late on Friday night I endeavored to get to this spot in plenty of time yesterday night. As soon as the parade was over I pounced on my spot and defended it for three hours. I was quite surprised (annoyed) that although the area in front of the castle is out of bounds for safety reasons, people can still walk past between that area and where everyone was waiting patiently for the fireworks to begin. Consequently I have a LOT of shots with ghostly looking people wandering across the image.

My final image here is a manual blend of two shots. One taken during the display and the other for the foreground that I took AFTER the show when I was able to get a bit closer and avoid all the passersby.

Canon EOS 40D, Sigma 10-20mm.
