July 4th, 2012: The day I officially became ADDICTED to photographing FIREWORKS. (Just when is the next occasion to do this between now and the next Independence Day?). This selection was taken at the display in Webster, MA on Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg. The girls and I had the best seat in the house (IMO), right at the edge of the water on the boat dock. It was a beautiful, clear night, and the fireworks were lit right off the beach. I only wish I had a vantage point in the sky to capture both the fireworks AND their reflection on the lake. After the show, the crowd diverged to their cars, and low but rowdy voices were heard chanting “USA!” or “AMERICA! I LOVE THIS COUNTRY!” and I couldn’t help but think of the men serving our country that didn’t have the privelege of seeing such a show. Therefore, this gallery is dedicated to the United States military. God Bless and God Speed.
Here are my personal favorites:
