A Few Fireworks From the Fourth

B and I went to my hometown for the Fourth this year. Thunder on the Ridge is the largest fireworks display in Polk county and it takes place just across the lake from the house of my childhood. Somehow, we had never been there for the celebration before. Probably because (1) it is safer not to travel on the holidays, and (2) there are family birthdays in both late June and late July to be together for.

At any rate, it was fairly spectacular and here are a few of my efforts to capture the moments.

Smaller fireworks shot up from the beach are reflecting off the lake.

What makes the one below unique is the palm tree that was in my way. Doesn't it look like the whole top is ablaze?
