4th of July Pyrotechnics

I captured some great images with my Canon PowerShot at the city's 4th of July fireworks display.  Next time I'll try to remember a tripod.  The excessively long shutter speed catches the unsteadiness in my hand.  Still they are great pictures.  For best viewing click on any photo and look at them against the black background of the picture viewer.

Happy Independence Day!


  1. Wow, remarkable photos! I'm not sure my Canon allows me to make theses kind of pictures, I'll give it a try next New Year's Day. You could use the unsteadiness to make special effects on purpose.

  2. Thanks guys! No special talent on my part. The camera has a specific fireworks setting. The hardest part is holding still.
