the fourth of july


the fourth of july at ft. lewis. an annual tradition (i think we're on the 9th year in a row)...with mike and the plu football team crew lighting the sky for the freedom fest. i love being out here on post for independence day - the crowd was thinner this year due to deployments, but it was so worth it to be there.

each year, they hand out sweet 3-d glasses, which stella is modeling above (complete with her trademarked 'warm and welcoming smile'. :)

in an effort to provide some different glimpses into how much i love fireworks photography...here are a few of my favorites (complete with technical terms)

with the 3-d glasses hanging over the lens...before the show started. the light is from one of the stadium lights.


cool streakies made by zooming the lens out while shooting.

i love combos...with the purple streaks and the quick white sparkly ones...

and a little bit of golden love...


some streakies showing the boys lighting the show below with road flares...


i just loved the simplicity of this one. lots of black, light green, and the rose trailer.




and a sweet new addition for this year...part of the grand finale.


good stuff.
