And the Rockets’ Red Glare, the Bombs Bursting in Air

This year we took a distance approach to capturing some fireworks. We got to the location and we noticed that there was some tall and I mean tall trees that we could use to our advantage. I thought that I could get a cool effect if the trees blocked the low flying fireworks and my gamble paid off.

One of the bummers this year was that the fog rolled in and blanketed the sky. However the effect that the fog gives at the top of the images is way cool.
