October, 2013 Trip Report - Wishes

As we exited Be Our Guest, Tinkerbell was making her flight from the top of Cinderella's Castle and Wishes was about to begin. While I did have my camera with me, I didn't have a tripod ... remember, not only had I not planned on photographing fireworks, I had no plan to even be in Disney World this trip, so my tripod was safely back at my house in New York. I quickly made a few adjustments to my camera's settings ... breaking all the rules I use to photograph fireworks ... and hoped for the best.

Generally when you see photos of Wishes, you see Cinderella's Castle in the pictures. While a castle is present in the shots, this time it is The Beast's Castle. Also, while the view here is spectacular, you do have to look in two directions, as some of the fireworks are going off behind you.

While these pictures generally don't show the full blooms of the exploding fireworks, they came out better than I had anticipated. Your decide ...
