Independence Day / Happy Fourth of July

Fireworks and Moon_8655_crop_edited-1

                                      Full Moon Fourth of July, Ft. Lauderdale, FL 2012

For a change in the usual fireworks vantage point we moved back and up last year. That is, rather than watching from up close, we went to the top of the highest point in Broward County, Vista View Park, and watched multiple fireworks displays as they took place across the County. Although not as impactful as seeing a good display close-up, this did offer a new point of view.

The addition of the full moon was only possible when a cloud crossed in front of it, allowing the camera’s shutter to remain open long enough to capture several firework bursts without blowing out (over exposing) the moon. Happy Birthday U.S.A.
