It's always nice to get a little distraction from daily life. It's a great time to hang out with the family. I also like to use the Fourth as a time to get back into getting better at photography. This year we had a great fireworks show. The display was amazing and the wind was just right. I've been working each year to get a little better than the last at making fireworks photos, so here are this year's best.
These were all shot in bulb mode with a remote shutter release so it's all luck as to what you're going to get. Overall I'm really happy with the results. I hope you enjoy them.
