I thought I would share some of my apocalyptic fireworks pictures from the Fourth.  

That's pretty cool looking, right?  Or at least, it's interesting.  KJ says "interesting" is the word you use when you don't really know what else to say.  Perhaps he is right.  But, I kind of like this one.  I wasn't expecting lens flare from fireworks.  Incidentally, I think I may have to change my blog's layout.  I'm getting tired of things on the side ruining the scope of my pictures.  

I really love the Atlanta skyline in these pictures, too.

This one wasn't apocalyptic.

I just picked it out as one of the 500 pictures I snapped
of fireworks that was worthy to be kept.

It survived the purge.


  1. In preparation for the 4th, I read a how-to tutorial for taking pics of fireworks. One of the tips for exceptional fireworks shots is to include a portion of the horizon for scale. I really like the ones with the coke bottle (I think I must have seen them on facebook). I didn't get to take any fireworks pictures because of the rain. But you did a great job!

  2. Thanks, Leslie! I read a few tutorials, too, and tried to incorporate that tip into some of the shots. I shot so many just hoping for a few good ones. It was fun.
