Happy Independence Day

In remembrance of the original “rockets red glare,” here’s a few shots from Scranton’s fireworks show on Wednesday evening.  We kicked Independence Day off a few hours early, with one of the best fireworks shows I can remember seeing.  Even cooler that it took place right over the Courthouse Square in downtown.  You know it’s a good show when the audience actually cheers for some of the displays.

Here’s wishing everyone a happy Independence Day, filled with family, friends, and good times!

(And if you’re after some good fireworks photos of your own and have a tripod and a camera with a manual exposure mode, try f/11 & 15 sec at your lowest ISO as a good starting point.  You can vary your shutter speed to capture more or fewer fireworks per frame, and change the brightness of the fireworks by adjusting the aperture.)
