Summer isn’t my favorite time of year… mainly because I can’t snowboard. But it does have a few fun holidays and the 4th of July is one of them. Everyone is outside, bar-b-ques, family gatherings, and just celebrating America. I have loved fireworks since I was a little kid. What isn’t to like about lighting something on fire and watching it explode? Well this year I decided to take some pictures of things exploding in the skies! It took some experimenting with exposure time, hoping the smoke from one would clear before the next, and just some dumb luck! I had fun and can’t wait to take more pictures of fireworks and hope next time I can shoot in a city to add some new elements!
