Amazing lighting show put on by mother nature! If you were snoozing away like a lot of people, you missed a good show. Here are a few shots that I took from the evening.
After the Salmon Idaho (where I’m from) Parade, we stopped by one of the local fireworks shops and found some mortars, and 3 stage bottle rockets. This was the first year that we have purchased “the good stuff” (some people call them illegal, but I like to think that they are approved somewhere in the country so that is good enough for me). Grandpa turned the sprinklers on down in the gully so we could stage our fireworks show in a nice safe, and no- flammable area. The boys were so excited to actually get some fireworks that got off the ground. Their pre-requsite when purchasing the fireworks was, “is it dangerous, and scary? ok lets get it”. The moon was a nice touch in the backdrop of all the photos. I turned my shutter to “bulb” on my Nikon D600 and used my remote with tripod. The boys lit the fireworks, I opened the shutter, and then closed after the firework was done giving it a bright well exposed firework photo. Pictures turned out good, but the experience, and time spent with family was awesome! Happy Independence Day!
