Today, I really enjoy trying to capture images of them (less burned fingers this way). This year we were invited by friends to the Visalia Country Club for their celebration on July 3rd. It was a very toasty night after 107 degree day but the slight breeze kept the skies relatively clear of smoke.
Besides the friends we were with, there were two other reasons I liked this display of fireworks. 1) There were much smaller crowds. In fact most of the crowd was much closer to the shooting point and I was all alone on one of the back fairways. 2) What makes these photos special is there is a lake to capture reflections!
There are 116 photos from this evening if you are so inclined to browse through the gallery: 3rd of July Fireworks 2013 – Visalia Country Club. Enjoy.
