Skywatch Friday!

We live about 20 minutes from Disneyland, so my wife and I decided to try taking some fireworks pictures.  I set up my tripod, but was disappointed that the fireworks weren't higher on the horizon!  I had fireworks coming out of the trees!!

We found a new spot... no trees, but a parking structure with lights.  Oh well, with some cropping, the pics came out pretty good for a first attempt.

Enjoy, happy SkyWatch Friday, and happy 4th of July!! (and Kaitlin, Happy Birthday!!!).

for more beautiful skies from around the world!


  1. All of them are GREAT pictures...I think I like the last one the sparkles!
    I think I may have to tag along if you do this again. Need to get a lesson on how you set the camera.

  2. Wow, I think you did a GREAT job capturing these fireworks! (All the pretty without all the loud noise and smoke - that's how I like fireworks!) :-) Your post is very festive, and perfect for this week's SkyWatch!

    My favorites are the third one (the second one from your new, improved vantage point) and the last one ~ the pink snazzle! Looks like an illuminated grapefruit fizzy drink! :-)

    Have a safe and happy 4th!

  3. I am a sucker for fireworks! Drives me to tears how pretty they are :s my favorites are the third and the last photo. :)
