Through The Lens 81 – Happy Independence Day

Yes, I know I’m a couple of days early, but since I post these on Fridays, this is as close as we’re going to get.  Anyway, this one is from a few years back.  I’ve only shot the Washington DC Independence Day fireworks from the Marine Corps Memorial one time and found it to be a very difficult exposure.  The monument is so dark compared to the fireworks that most of what I got was either badly overexposed fireworks or an underexposed monument.  Fortunately I got one good frame out of that attempt.  Maybe I’ll try it again someday.

Happy Independence Day!


Through The Lens 33 – Happy Independence Day!

Yeah, I know I’m a couple of days early, but with fireworks displays scheduled throughout the holiday weekend, it seemed appropriate. This one is one of my favorites from the Capitol Fourth fireworks show on the Mall in Washington DC. If the weather cooperates, I may head down again this year.
