Yesterday the United States of America celebrated its Independence Day commemorating the day the 13 American colonies declared independence from the British empire. The highlight of this holiday is a festive fireworks display celebrated all over the country.  Luckily, I live 5 minutes walk to the beach where my home city’s firework showcase was to be held. It being a last minute decision I ended up not finding my tripod and taking the photos handheld. I enjoyed watching the fireworks display and captured a few decent shots. I am posting 16 shots that I personally like and hope you guys like them too. The settings I used were f/16, 4 seconds and ISO100. Happy 4th of July to all!

    • Thank you! I had to hold my breath while taking the shots. Although I just read yesterday that if one does not have a tripod, click on the camera while exhaling. It’s supposedly more stable during exhale than while holding the breath.


  1. Stunning shots! Very beautiful. I would have shared my post when we watched fireworks in Hong Kong to usher in 2016 but there are no match to your awesome shots. πŸ˜„
