Last years fireworks were moved to the Minnesota state capitol building because of some flooding. They would have been launched over the Mississippi River. This year they will be at the CHS ball park. I hope to get a picture or two to add to my collection of fireworks photos.
I always enjoy the fireworks.
From last nights 4th of July fireworks in St. Paul. It was a gorgeous evening for people but a little windy for fireworks.
If you ask me which no one did fireworks don’t add anything to holiday lights. It was a challenge to photograph. This was taken at the tree lighting ceremony in Rice Park last weekend.
I stood on a bridge for an hour in the heat while children in the crowd played with explosives. Out of the 100 or so pictures I took 3 of them turned out okish. Â The fireworks look the same every year so if I screw up I can always use pictures from a prior year. Â This year I have a better camera and was able to do something with it that I could not have done before. By the time I was done shooting I figured out how to get a good shot but i’ll forget all of this by the next year and will start all over again.
I take pictures of fireworks every year but I may skip it this year. These are from the Taste of Minnesota on Harriet Island. Most years there have been fireworks several nights in a row and the rumor is that this year there will only be fireworks on the 4th. For tips on how to shoot fireworks . . and I think it is challenging here is an article on the DPS web site. The biggest challenge for me has been the bright spot lights on Harriet Island. Good luck! and be careful out there.
