My World Tuesday #39 - Fireworks

This past Saturday night, Karl and I along with our neighbors and friends, went to see the fireworks display put on the by the small town of Brewster. From our vantage point overlooking the town and Columbia River, we watched in awe of the pyrotechnic prowess being performed.

I also learned more about nighttime photography thanks to Karl and his patience. Or maybe it was me being more receptive to the lesson being taught. Either way, I had fun taking pictures of the fireworks.

Lots of Fireworks!

Magnifique! Excellent! Well done, Sally!

I think in taking good pictures such as Yours requires two things: Passion and steady Pulse graced with creativity.

But a help from the professionals will take you a long way to Excellence.

Looks like you handled the nighttime photography very well. Beautifully done. I wish I thought to take the camera with me when we rushed out to see the fireworks.
