SHOT ON THE 4TH OF JULY

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˜„
