Happy 5th of July.

I made this capture last night from a friend’s hillside home. Looking down on the valley gave a different perspective on the firework shows than I am used to.

The shot is not as sharp as I would prefer (due to camera shake) and I had to apply a bit of aggressive sharpening to the image. The cause of the camera movement was the deck full of people I was shooting from. Anytime someone moved, it caused a slight shake in the deck – just enough to mess with the shot.
