ka-pow!

Some friends of ours hosted a fourth of July soiree over the weekend and we were so glad to be there. Lots of delicious food and drink and great conversation, and then there were fireworks. Woot!

I realized when we were out there that my camera has a setting for fireworks, so I switched that on and hoped for the best.

It works pretty well, actually.

The hardest thing was getting the camera centered properly to get the entire blast in one shot.

I have to say, I’m pretty impressed with how well it captured these! Because of the fireworks setting process, it takes a longer moment before you can take a second shot, and by then that firework has usually faded, so I got better with timing the further on it got.

Many big thanks to our hosts George and Jenny for such a terrific evening!
