-_-_-_# OHHHHHHH

Photographing fireworks is kind of a tricky affair, getting everything just right and making sure the colors get recorded and not just white streaks. Like millions of people who celebrate the 4th here in the US we went to our town's display, opened the back of the SUV and enjoyed the evening with good friends and no bugs!! I set up my camera and for the most part just had fun, one of those let's just see what happens nights. I was a little dissappointed when I couldn't count every spark but that's OK, I liked what I saw. I wanted to post something from the night but wasn't sure where it was going. This morning I started fresh with a new idea that seemed to play out and developed nicely as I worked.

 

So this is MY fireworks shot, I'm sure there isn't another one like it!
