Coming In Low...

4th of July fireworks sail into the Mississippi River in Saint Paul, MN. Still-burning fireworks hitting the ground is one of the most exciting parts. I'm amazed at the skills of the pyrotechnicians, and think about how just one small mistake could become a major disaster. Fortunately, spectators were kept back a safe distance and it was an amazing show.

    Wow nicely done, especially exposure as the bright white ones are hard for me to get and look good.

    Great sharp detail in this one, and I like the St Paul skyline visible through the smoke in the background, with the peoples' silhouettes for a foreground!

    I just saw this on the MPR website; very impressive and a difficult low light shot to take - you did it well
