Photographer's Note

This is a shot of the firework celebration at the end of my local town's summer celebration, Fiesta Days. Fiesta Days was started after the town was founded in the 1850's and continues this day with parades, carnivals, and a pretty good rodeo. The event culminates with a firework display at the city's softball park.

This year it was rather windy/stormy and the firework display didn't last very long before the storms and wind blew in.

Shot off of a tripod in manual mode...I had to experiment a bit to get a feel for what a 'good' exposure would be for the time that a firework explosion would 'hang' in the air.
