177/365 July 4th

These are a few of the fireworks pics I took this year. Tried a new technique I'd read about where the shutter speed is set quite slow (5-6 seconds) and the focus is changed during the shot. I didn't get the results the article explained, but I did get some cool shots. These are some of our faves.
Remember, you can double click to see them bigger. - We thought this first one looked like electricity in those sci-fi movie energy balls.....
The definition of what constitutes 'lots of people' is certainly different in a small town. We got there maybe 15 minutes before the fireworks, parked within a few blocks, when it was over, walked back to the car and pulled right out into traffic, no waiting...... the whole event took only a little more than an hour!
