D90 and the Golden Gate Bridge 75th Anniversary Celebration!

I'm fortunate enough to live about 50 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge so me and my d90 had to take advantage of this great photo opportunity. The city and the bridge were celebrating 75 years since it was built and planned a big fire works display on the bay and bridge.

Since crowds were suppose to be in the hundreds of thousands I planed accordingly and left my house at 9:am to get a good spot. After waiting 10 hours for the show to begin, I was ready! I set my tripod up and grabbed my remote. I was using my tamron 17-50mm 2.8 lens. My D90 settings were, manual programing, shutter set to bulb, aperture varied though out the shoot as was exposure time. I tried to expose anywhere from 2 seconds to 7 seconds. Anyway I had a blast and must of took over 200 pictures through out the day and evening. So I thought I'd share with you all.

I'll be attempting my first fireworks shooting with my D90 this New Year's. This might be a dumb question, but where do you have your focal point set? I've always been puzzled about that when taking wide landscape shots.

Thu, manual focus to infinity!
