Fourth of July Fireworks

Turns out, it's not so hard to take good firework shots! :-)

Our flag was lowered because of the tragic loss of 19 young firefighters in Arizona, last Saturday. I found out last night that they had been part of the thousands of heroes that had come out here two years ago to save our town from Las Conchas Fire. These shots are dedicated to them and their families. There are no words to express how saddened I am by this loss.


  1. Were you thinking it was hard? You did good and they make a lovely tribute too :-)

    1. Thanks Geoff! The day before the 4th everywhere on the internet I kept seeing posts and blogs on "how to shoot fireworks," "10 tricks to get perfect firework shots," etc, so I thought it had to be hard if everybody was giving advice...

      Of course, the "tips" were of the type: "use a tripod" and "shoot in manual" (insert eye roll here) ;-)
