               Sunset, Fireworks and Lightning

We were fortunate to be with friends for their annual Fourth of July Party celebration which always ends with fireworks.

The weather was threatening. The sky was grey and there was lightening.

Usually we wait for dark to begin the display. But not last night.

The fireworks started as the sun was setting in a beautiful orange sky with a bit of rain and some lightening.   

                                             Sunset, Fireworks, lightning 7.7.12

 

Beauty and a wonderful way to end a delightful 4th of July weekend with...

                     Sunset, Fireworks and Lightning 7.7.12

Lets shake things up at your home today!

The fireworks in Fairport Harbor were cancelled last night, and I'm not sure why, it was a beautiful evening.  Glad you got to enjoy the fireworks.

Now that is what I call an incredible sky-I have never seen such a fabulous shade of apricot! Going to my Benjamin Color deck right now!

Margaret, I'm glad you got to enjoy them. We've been so dry from lack of rain that they were canceled in all but the larger towns and Nashville downtown.

Hi Margaret, I can't remember experiencing this sunset setting for fireworks. But it certaiinly made for interesting photos. The gradual change of sky darkening would be most iinteresting. There is a point just after sunset that the sky appears a vibrant blue on photos.

Carla, Thanks.

William, I was thinking about you while taking these photos. Last year at the party I had "our" tripod. Wish you were there with your camera.
