Fireworks Photography.

I'm fairly new to Washington D.C. area and wondering what would be the best place to capture 4th July fireworks shots? Have also heard that Gaithersburg, Maryland has good fireworks too. I'm confused and unable to decide on it.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks Pat

This may be too localized, as it is not only limited to a certain area, but also a certain day in time. I'll let the community voice their opinion, but I'm figuring this will probably need to be closed. – jrista Jun 30 '11 at 21:51
Yeah this question is certainly too localized. That said, the DC fireworks are amazing, so I hope you enjoy them Pat! You may want to try searching flickr for other people's "interesting" july 4th DC photos (…) to get ideas. – rm999 Jun 30 '11 at 22:11
Being too localized is about it applying to too few people to generate any significant traffic - there's a lot of photographers in the DC area that almost certainly plan on photographing the fireworks (this year and every other year). +1 to reopen. – rfusca Jul 1 '11 at 0:02
