Photos from Independence Day, 2009

Fireworks 1 Fireworks 2 Fireworks 3 Fireworks 4

Maryland has a funny history of having rainy Independence Day anniversaries (we celebrate the anniversary of something on July 4th and not the date itself: a distinction sadly lost to so many), which make for terrible fireworks photography. This year, the day was clear but not too hot, and a friend and I went over to the foot of the Naval Academy Bridge for a less crowded fireworks show than what could be seen in Baltimore or Washington. Out of around fifty long exposures I took during the show, those above are my favorite.
