Fireworks 2009July 5, 2009

After missing the previous two years of fireworks display at State College on July 4, Sue and I made it back. It was a lovely display and felt good to be outside.

For other years, I've had a sequence of nine or ten fireworks, but I thought selecting four favorites would do.

Red and blue fireworks
  I don't seem to have many green fireworks this year, but the blues came out well.
White and blue fireworks
  I would call the following one, Starry Night.
Starry night fireworks
  The final one is perhaps the strangest of them all, but then it is the quiet after the last fireworks of the evening have begun to fade.
Fading fireworks finale
  That last one reminds me of a post-impressionistic painting.

Photo note: I used a Pentax K200D, with the SMC-A* 300mm lens, on a tripod during the evening of July 4, 2009.
