Happy 4th of July 2010

This year, we decided to go see the fireworks in Monroe, NC, since it is closer to our home.  It was not as crowded as Charlotte, but it was crowded.  Unfortunately we did not get a good spot.  We were around a lot of  street lights.  My pictures are by no means spectacular, but they are miles away from the first ones I shot several years ago.  Here are a couple of those pictures:

I was actually proud of those pictures… Now that I’ve learned a little more, I have better pictures, but I feel I still have a long way to go.  I took these using the Bulb feature on my camera.  The aperture was set to 10 and the with the Bulb feature, my shutter speeds were anywhere from 2 – 25 seconds.

My lesson learned…get there early and know exactly where they are shutting the fireworks from.
