Fireworks (almost) in my backyard.

More pictures at this page. Notice this picture where one of the fireworks went off essentially at ground level. It is good to keep a safe distance from the staging area.

I took these on July 3rd and 4th in the schoolyard behind the backyard here. I used my Fuji S2 Pro digital SLR (ISO 100) with Nikkor 24mm f2.8 lens (f stops from 11 to 22) and “bulb” exposure (2 s to 120 s). Support from the Miller DS-5 tripod Emily Kay sent me earlier this year. I used ImageMagick to “normalize” and resize the pictures.
