I normally wouldn't have much interest in shooting a timelapse of fireworks. You just can't get that many frames per second, which is why it looks like it's going 100mph! But I decided to anyways and wanted to share a quick little video from New Years this year! I love how lit up SF gets, especially from this vantage point. Was bummed that they turned off the beacon on the Transamerica building 5 minutes before the show though, not really sure why.

I just locked down my clicker and got lucky with no buffering.
