For the past several years we have made a tradition of purchasing home-style fireworks at the tent by the Dairy Queen and lighting them off after dark on the 4th. It's our own little "show" at home because our town does their fourth of July celebration a week later. These are the kind of fireworks that don't shoot up in the air. They just burn at ground level. Here are my best four photos from last night, all taken with my Canon point & shoot in the "night shot" setting. I admit to a little post-processing in PSE, adjusting shadows, highlights, and contrast to really make the colors pop.
Despite their small size, they do make for a decent little light show and pretty photos.
