As anticipated, WaMu Family Fourth came through once again with a great evening show over Lake Union. Very entertaining, and worth it every year.

 

With the long July days, the fireworks was on while there was still a bit of light out, so I had to increase the contrast a bit to remove some distractions.

 

And it's true what they say, you need to check for wind directions. Wind was blowing in my direction so smoke really built up quickly. And a remote shutter release is a must! Gonna put that on my Wishlist. :)

 

Oh, and the other trick is not to get greedy to avoid overexposure.

A fireboat (behind the crowd) struts its stuff on Lake Union.

We arrived at 11am not knowing that gates to the park wouldn't open until noon. This is the view from our picnic blanket at around 3pm. Not bad! (Stitched Panorama)
