A Fireworks Blast!

All of the bigger boys spent the afternoon fishing, leaving me and the little man at home. They headed out to some beaver ponds that are just a few miles from us. They fished until the last possible minute and then came home. We immediatly hopped in the Suburban and headed for town. I had wanted to be on the opposite side of the lake for my picture taking but my lineman was not too excited about it. We found an open field instead. Then my lineman says "isn't the lake just right over there?" So we walked about a half a mile or more for a spot to view the fireworks.

I took lots of photos with the lake catching the reflection. I thought this one looked like a butterfly on the water. Too bad it was windy and the water wasn't calm. But then again... this is "Windoming". For some I zoomed in right to the action for a different look.

I took about 150 pictures. They are all kinda neat so maybe I'll put some in a slide show later. Hope you had a great 4th of July!
