It is the perfect setting for fireworks, so I knew I had to play around. Unfortunately my tripod is missing a piece and I was not going to the big fireworks display. I was not going to let that hold me back though. So here are my hand held, driveway fireworks shots...
This is a sparkling fountain, I framed the shot to the right of the main fountain to just get the sparks along the side and not the big stream coming up the middle.
This is the one shot I got of a large one exploding high in the sky, only a few of the local town display made it over the roof line, so I didn't have many chances, You can see the effects of not having a tripod in the squiggly lines...but I actually like the effect! :)
One of our fountains fell over and was shooting things sideways just above the pavement...I like the way it almost looks industrial, like a welding shot or something
This last one is my favorite, again just a ground fountain, I just love the colors on this one and with the tight framing it almost looks like a big finale in the sky rather than a little fountain!
Hope you all had a wonderful 4th!!!!
